It is intended to be used in conjunction with the other plans and instruction books already on board and in no way replaces or supersedes them.Information pertinent to the operation of the Iran Dena has been carefully collated in relation to the systems of the vessel and is presented in three on board volumes consisting of BRIDGE SYSTEMS OPERATING MANUAL, CARGO SYSTEMS OPERATING MANUAL and MACHINERY SYSTEMS OPERATING MANUAL.In addition to containing detailed information of the cargo and related systems, the CARGO SYSTEMS OPERATING MANUAL contains safety procedures, and procedures to be observed in emergencies and after accidents. The Cargo Systems Operating Manual is designed to complement Marpol 73/78, ISGOTT and Company Regulations.The vessel is constructed to comply with Marpol 73/78. These regulations can be found in the Consolidated Edition, 1991 and in the Amendments dated 1992, 1994 and 1995.Officers should familiarise themselves with the contents of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, so that they are aware of the category of the cargo being carried and the requirements for cleaning of cargo tanks and the disposal of tank washings/ballast containing residues.Particular attention is drawn to Appendix IV of Marpol 73/78, the form of Cargo Record Book. It is essential that a record of relevant cargo/ballast operations are kept in the Cargo Record Book and duly signed.In many cases the best operating practice can only be learned by experience. Where the information in this manual is found to be inadequate or incorrect, details should be sent to the N.I.T.C. Technical Operations Office so that revisions may be made to manuals of other ships of the same class.Safe OperationThe safety of the ship depends on the care and attention of all on board. Most safety precautions are a matter of common sense and good housekeeping and are detailed in the various manuals available on board. However, records show that even experienced operators sometimes neglect safety precautions through over-familiarity and the following basic rules must be remembered at all times.1. Never continue to operate any machine or equipment which appears to be potentially unsafe or dangerous and always report such a condition immediately.2. Make a point of testing all safety equipment and devices regularly. Always test safety trips before starting any equipment. In particular, overspeed trips on auxiliary turbines must be tested before putting the unit to work.3. Never ignore any unusual or suspicious circumstances, no matter how trivial. Small symptoms often appear before a major failure occurs.4. Never underestimate the fire hazard of petroleum products, whether fuel oil or cargo vapour.5. Never start a machine remotely from the control room without checking visually if the machine is able to operate satisfactorily.In the design of equipment and machinery, devices are included to ensure that, as far as possible, in the event of a fault occurring, whether on the part of the equipment or the operator, the equipment concerned will cease to function without danger to personnel or damage to the machine. If these safety devices are neglected, the operation of any machine is potentially dangerous.DescriptionThe concept of this Cargo Systems Operating Manual is based on the presentation of operating procedures in the form of one general sequential chart (algorithm) which gives a step-by-step procedure for performing operations required for the carriage of products.The manual consists of introductory sections which describe the systems and equipment fitted and their method of operation related to a schematic diagram where applicable. This is then followed where required by detailed operating procedures for the system or equipment involved.Each cargo handling operation consists of a detailed introductory section which describes the objectives and methods of performing the operation related to the appropriate flow sheet which shows pipelines in use and directions of flow within the pipelines.A list showing the valves which are OPEN during the different operations is also provided for quick reference.The valves and fittings identifications used in this manual are the same as those used by the shipbuilder.IllustrationsAll illustrations are referred to in the text and are located either in-text where sufficiently small or above the text, so that both the text and illustration are accessible when the manual is laid open. When text concerning an illustration covers several pages the illustration is duplicated above each page of text.Where flows are detailed in an illustration these are shown in colour. A key of all colours and line styles used in an illustration is provided on the illustration. Details of colour coding used in the illustrations are given in the following colour scheme.Symbols given in the manual adhere to international standards and keys to the symbols used throughout the manual are given on the following pages.NoticesThe following notices occur throughout this manual:WARNINGWarnings are given to draw readers attention to operation where DANGER TO LIFE OR LIMB MAY OCCUR.CAUTIONCautions are given to draw readers attention to operations where DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT MAY OCCUR.(Note: Notes are given to draw readers attention to points of interest or to supply supplementary information.)Front Matter Page 3N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYPART 1: CARGO SYSTEM DESCRIPTION 1.1 Cargo Tanks LayoutIllustrations 1.1a Cargo Tanks LayoutIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 1.1a Cargo Tanks LayoutKeyCargo Group 1Cargo Group 2Cargo Group 3KeyCargo Group 1Cargo Group 227/73% Split47/27/26% SplitKeyCargo Group 1Cargo Group 247/53% SplitNo.1 Port WingNo.1 Stb'd WingNo.1 CentreNo.2 Stb'd WingNo.2 CentreNo.3 Port WingNo.3 Stb'd WingNo.3 CentreNo.4 Port WingNo.4 Stb'd WingNo.4 CentreNo.5 PortWingPortSlopNo.5 Stb'dWingStb'dSlopNo.5 CentreNo.2 Port WingNo.1 Port WingNo.1 Stb'd WingNo.1 CentreNo.2 Stb'd WingNo.2 CentreNo.3 Port WingNo.3 Stb'd WingNo.3 CentreNo.4 Port WingNo.4 Stb'd WingNo.4 CentreNo.5 PortWingPortSlopNo.5 Stb'dWingStb'dSlopNo.5 CentreNo.2 Port Wing No.1 Port WingNo.1 Stb'd WingNo.1 CentreNo.2 Stb'd WingNo.2 CentreNo.3 Port WingNo.3 Stb'd WingNo.3 CentreNo.4 Port WingNo.4 Stb'd WingNo.4 CentreNo.5 PortWingPortSlopNo.5 Stb'dWingStb'dSlopNo.5 CentreNo.2 Port WingKeyCargo Group 1Cargo Group 226.5/73.5% SplitNo.1 Port WingNo.1 Stb'd WingNo.1 CentreNo.2 Stb'd WingNo.2 CentreNo.3 Port WingNo.3 Stb'd WingNo.3 CentreNo.4 Port WingNo.4 Stb'd WingNo.4 CentreNo.5 PortWingPortSlopNo.5 Stb'dWingStb'dSlopNo.5 CentreNo.2 Port Wing1.1 Page 1 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPART 1: CARGO SYSTEMS DESCRIPTION1.1 CARGO TANKS LAYOUTThe cargo tanks consist of five centre tanks and six pairs of wing cargo oil tanks (port and starboard). The aftermost pair of wing tanks are designated as the vessels slop tanks and have a combined capacity of 9,176m3.The tanks are divided into main groups as follows:Number 1 GroupNo.1, 2 and 4 and 5 centre and No.3 wings giving a total of 159,156m3 at 98% capacity; 47% total ship capacity.Number 2 GroupNo.3 centre, No.1 and 5 wings giving a total of 90,085m3 at 98% capacity; 26.8% total ship capacity.Number 3 GroupNo.2 and 4 wing tanks and both slop tanks giving a total of 88,960m3 at 98% capacity; 26.2% total ship capacity.The cargo tanks can also be divided into two groups to give an approximate 47/53% split as indicated below.Number 1 GroupNo.1, 2, 4 and 5 centre COT and No.3 wings COT giving a total of 159,156m3 at 98% capacity.Number 2 GroupNo.1, 2, 4 and 5 wings COT, No.3 centre COT and both slop tanks (port and starboard) giving a total of 179,045m3 at 98% capacity;or alternatively, to give an approximate 26.5/73.5% split:Number 1 GroupNo.2 and 4 wings COT and both slop tanks giving a total of 88,960m3 at 98% capacity.Number 2 GroupNo.1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 centre COT, No.1, 3, and 5 wings COT tanks giving a total of 249,241m3 at 98% capacity.Or to give an approximate 27/73% split:Number 1 GroupNo.3 centre, No.1 and 5 wings giving a total of 90,085m3 at 98% capacity; Number 2 GroupNo.1, 2, 4 and 5 centre COT, No.2, 3, and 4 wings COT and both slop tanks giving a total of 248,116m3 at 98% capacity.(Note: The above possible configerations are based purely on tank segregation and capacities only. The actual loading quantities to be determined by the cargo specific gravity and resulting stress and stability figures obtained from the loading computer.)Five pairs of ballast tanks are situated outboard of, and underneath the cargo oil tanks. The fore and aft peak tanks along with the engine room side ballast tanks (port and starboard) are also used for ballast. The total capacity of the ballast tanks, including the fore, aft peaks and engine room side ballast tanks, is 103,539m3 at 100% capacity. 1.1 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY1.2 Cargo Piping System 1.2.1 System Description 1.2.2 Cargo Measuring and Sampling 1.2.3 Slop Tank Usage 1.2.4 Slop Tank HeatingIllustrations 1.2.1a Cargo Piping System 1.2.2a Cargo Measuring and SamplingIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPTHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPTPTHHHHHSeaChestHHHCargo Grade - 2KeyCargo Grade - 1Cargo Grade - 3Stripping LineSea WaterTank CleaningHeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HH HH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHHHHHHH H H HH H H HHHCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL198VCL106VCL107VCL108VCL195VIllustration 1.2.1a Cargo Piping SystemCL057VSteam and AirCondensateNo.1No.2No.3Cargo Oil Pumps(5,500m3/h x150mth)Tank Cleaning Pump (3,000m3/h x150mth)Cargo Oil Stripping Pump (450m3/h x150mth)8k Air8k AirNo.5 StarboardWater BallastTankFromWater BallastSystemSampling PointPipe TrunkCL068VCL184VCL177VCL163VCL183VCL178VCL164VCL182VCL179VCL165VCL181VCL140VCL133VCL138VCL131VCL139VCL132VCL123VCL251VCL122VCL134VTo Tank Cleaning MainCL096VBilgeSuction(Aft)BilgeSuction(Fwd)BilgeSuction(VoidSpace)Cargo Oil Stripping LineNo.1 Cargo Main LineNo.2 Cargo Main LineNo.3 Cargo Main LineCL097VCL270VCL256VFromVacuumSystemFromFire LineFromInert GasMainCL180VCL166VCL059VCL065VCL064VCL069VCL063VCL062VCL060VCL061VCL087VCL120VCL095VCL071VCL076VCL077VCL074VCL075VCL072VCL073VCL119VCL086VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL091VCL090VCL093VCL092VCL124VCL054VCL252VCL055VCL272VCL277VCL050VCL053VCL253VCL109VCL110VCL111V CL116V CL117VCL147VCL101VCL148VCL112V CL113VCL114V CL115VCL121VCL051VCL071VCL052VCL056VCL125VCL126VCL127VCL130V CL082VCL254VCL136VCL137VCL161VCL168VCL078VCL084VCL058VCL269VCL128VCL129VCL267VCL201VCL200VNo.1No.2Cargo OilStrippingEductors(700m3/h)Pump Room BilgeStripping Eductors(10m3/h)CL083VCL080VCL079VCL081VCL094VCL135VCL255VCL206VCL213VCL225VCL160VCL159VCL158VCL212VCL226VCL211VCL227VCL210VCL228VCL145VCL100VCL146VCL207VCL143VCL099VCL144VCL208VCL141VCL098VCL142VCL209VCL149VCL009VCL030VCL007VCL001VCL011VCL017VCL020VCL191VCL262VCL002VCL028VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL042VCL041VCL043VCL044VCL045VCL040VCL027VCL046VCL026VCL014VCL047VCL025VCL048VCL024VCL049VCL039VCL008VCL029VCL010VCL031VCL012VCL032VCL015VCL034VCL018VCL036VCL021VCL038VCL261V CL260V CL259VCL013VCL033VCL016VCL035VCL019VCL037VCL022VCL263VCL023VCL102VCL150VCL205VCL214VCL224VCL157VCL215VCL223VCL216VCL222VCL217VCL221VCL151VCL103VCL152VCL204VCL153VCL104VCL154VCL203VCL155VCL105VCL156VCL202VCL268VCL197VCL194VNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.4CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Stb'd)Slop Tank(Port)Slop Tank(Stb'd)No.4 COTPort WingNo.4 COTStarboard WingNo.3 COTPort WingCL199VCL264VHCL286VCL070VH1.2/1.2.1 Page 1 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1.2 CARGO PIPING SYSTEM1.2.1 SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONCargo SystemIf required, three different grades of cargo can be loaded or discharged concurrently with two valve separation.The cargo is loaded through four cargo manifolds on the main deck, then via three direct loading drop lines, situated in No.3 centre cargo oil tank, to the associated suction main for each group of tanks.The system can be made common by use of a crossover line situated in the pump room and at the forward end of the bottom lines in No.1 and 2 centre.Discharge of the cargo tanks is via three steam turbine driven centrifugal cargo oil pumps, each of 5,500m3/h capacity situated in the cargo pump room, discharging to the respective manifolds on deck. Each cargo pump is connected to an automatic cargo stripping unit consisting of gas separators and vacuum pumping units. The lines from the tanks to the pumps are of a nominal 750mm diameter.The cargo lines are drained using a steam driven reciprocating stripping pump rated at 450m3/h, situated in the pump room, discharging via the 200mm line (commonly called the MARPOL Line), to the manifolds outboard of the manifold valves. The cargo oil pumping system is designed to discharge the bulk of the cargo oil from all cargo oil tanks, in approximately xx hours, excluding stripping and time for crude oil washing.Crude oil washing, which is essential if maximum out-turns are to be achieved, is accomplished by using the tank cleaning pump or by bleeding off crude oil from the cargo pump discharge lines to the tank cleaning machines via the tank cleaning line.The cargo tanks are to be maintained fully inerted during all cargo handling operations.The bottom suction lines in the pump room can be interconnected on the pump suction side through the sea suction (700/600mm) crossover.The discharge side of the cargo pumps can also be interconnected through a (650mm) crossover line, terminating in a high overboard discharge outlet on the starboard side and above the deepest water ballast line. The tank cleaning main is also fed from this line. The overboard line has a sampling probe for the oil discharge monitoring and control system and a flow meter sensor.The slop tanks are interconnected by a levelling line and valve. Both slop tanks have separate stripping suctions connected to the cargo oil stripping pump and eductor crossover.The crossover line on the cargo suction main and discharge main lines in the cargo pump room are provided for the flexibility of cargo handling and tank cleaning with sea water. Similarly, crossover lines are provided at the forward end of the tank bottom lines in No.1 and 2 centre tank, with two valve separation.Each cargo tank has a stripping valve in a suction well situated at the port side aft, while the main suction is fitted with a cone type bellmouth.Ballast is not carried in the cargo tanks under normal circumstances, but, if it is considered that additional ballast in a cargo tank or tanks may be required during the ballast voyage, under the conditions and provisions specified in Regulation 13 (3) of Annex I in MARPOL 73/78, such ballast water can be handled by the cargo pumping and piping system.Both slop tanks are fitted with heating coils.Cargo Stripping SystemStripping of the cargo is performed by the cargo pumps with an automatic stripping system, cargo stripping eductors and a cargo stripping pump.The cargo oil pumps are fitted with an individual automatic stripping system consisting of four vacuum pumps, sealing water tank and gas separator. Gas and condensate from the automatic cargo stripping system is extracted by means of the vacuum pumps.Two 700m3/h stripping eductors are installed to take suction from each of the cargo bottom lines, via the eductor/stripping pump crossover, and discharging to the port or starboard slop tank. The eductor drive can be supplied by any of the main cargo pumps. The manifold area is fitted with drip trays either side which can be drained down to No.3 wing cargo tanks. One cargo stripping discharge line with a diameter of 200mm, as required by MARPOL 73/78, is led to the upper deck and connected outboard of the manifold valves on each side.The cargo stripping pump is used for discharging the contents of the cargo pump room bilge to the starboard slop tank, or directly overboard via the ODME. Manual control of the pump room stripping pump bilge suction isolator valve CL084V is via a deck valve stand fitted at upper deck level.1.2/1.2.1 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 1.2.2a Cargo Measuring and SamplingNo. 2 C.O.T.

Ballast, fuel and diesel oil tank levels are displayed in the CCR using electro-pneumatic type equipment. Two ND37.5 (1.5'') seal valves plus one ND50 (2'') seal valve are fitted to each cargo oil tank, and one ND25 plus one ND50 to each slop tank. These seal valves provide hand dipping points, independent ullage checks, temperatures and oil/water interface using the MMC portable cargo monitoring device. The seal valve allows for the connection and disconnection of the portable cargo monitoring devices without having to broach the inert gas in the cargo tanks. Sufficient hand dipping points are fitted for checking the dryness of the tank in accordance with the requirements of the IMO.An independent Omicron high level (98% overfill) alarm is fitted to each cargo oil and slop tank. The alarm indicator panel is situated in a dedicated cabinet in the CCR along with the Omicron gas sampling, vapour alarm and gas warning system. The overfill panel has indication of AC and DC power failure and failure reset button, system on/off switch, accept alarm flash, accept horn and LED indication for each cargo oil and slop tank. The alarm status is also fed to the Super Cargo XL system, mimic OMICRON SYSTEM ALARM (1/2). Alarm indication on deck is given by air operated horns and red indicator rotating lights located at the midships lighting posts at the manifold area on the port and starboard sides. Prior to cargo operations the Omicron high high level alarms are tested by removing the cap nut and pulling out the test rod on each individual unit. There is a 10~15 second time delay prior to the activation of the high high level alarm after lifting the test rod. Alarm indication is also relayed to the ECR on the alarm monitoring and control system if the alarm is not acknowledged within 120 seconds from the CCR.1.2.3 SLOP TANK USAGEThere are two slop tanks fitted on board with five uses. These are detailed as follows: Cargo carrying tanks. Crude oil washing (COW) when utilising the eductors. Water washing prior to tank inspection or refit. As part of the ODME system, the flow is automatically diverted, as necessary, to the port slop tank when decanting slops or discharging heavy weather ballast to sea. Tank volume (product) heating.Loading of the slop tanks is completed in the normal manner from the No.3 group bottom lines.Discharge of the slop tanks is normally via the main suctions during bulk discharge and then from the direct suctions in the pump room during draining. During COW, if the slop tanks and eductors are being utilised, fresh crude oil can be drawn from the either slop tank by any of the cargo oil pumps. Crude oil is pumped up the COW line and through the eductor system simultaneously. Both eductors can discharge to either the port or starboard slop tanks.During water washing, both slop tanks are normally utilised. Clean water is drawn from the starboard slop tank and the drainings from the eductors discharge are directed to the port slop tank. Clean water flows across to the starboard slop tank via the balance line to achieve closed cycle washing. Careful management of the slop tanks is essential at all times.The following useful guidelines should be noted:If the slop tanks are utilised for COW, it is necessary to decant the water from all COTs, including the slop tanks, subject to grade segregation. The slop tanks are discharged and refilled with dry crude oil prior to the commencement of COW. During COW, fresh crude oil can be drawn from the starboard slop tank via the main suction. The levels to which the slop tanks are recharged are arbitrary, but sufficient ullage is required in the clean slop tank to allow for the cargo pump to maintain suction and the balance line to remain covered if both slop tanks are used. Oxygen content readings of the slop tank atmospheres must be taken prior to COW or water washing and monitored at regular intervals. Readings must not exceed 8%.The slop tanks are aft and are of relatively small volume, therefore care must be taken when loading these tanks as they can fill rapidly.1.2.4 SLOP TANK HEATINGA tank cleaning heater is fitted on this vessel for heating the wash water when tank cleaning with water. There are isolating valves and spectacle blanks fitted on the inlet and outlet sides of the heater.WARNINGUnder normal COW operations, the tank cleaning heater inlet and outlet valves and spectacle blanks must be in the closed position with the heater bypass valve open in order to isolate the possibility of crude oil entering the engine room via the steam system in the event of a tube failure.Heating coils are fitted in both slop tanks. These are capable of heating the contents from from 44C to 60C when 50% full in 24 hours, with a sea water temperature of 5C and an ambient air temperature of 2C. 1.2/1.2.2/3/4 Page 2 of 2Slop Tank Steam Heater HeaderCondensateReturn IsolatorSteam Heating Supply InletSAAB Tank TemperatureMeasuring DeviceN.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY1.3 Cargo Pumps 1.3.1 Main Cargo Pumps 1.3.2 Stripping Pump and Eductors 1.3.3 Automatic Cargo Stripping System 1.3.4 Cargo Valves 1.3.5 High Velocity Pressure/Vacuum (PV) Valve and Purge PipeIllustrations 1.3.1a Main Cargo Pumps 1.3.1b Main Cargo Pump Characteristic Curves 1.3.2a Stripping Pump 1.3.3a Automatic Cargo Stripping System 1.3.3b AUS Cargo System Screen Display 1.3.5a High Velocity Pressure/Vacuum Valve 1.3.5b Purge PipeIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftEngine RoomIllustration 1.3.1a Main Cargo PumpsGovernorExhaustSteamCombined Steam Regulatingand Emergency Shut Off ValvePump RoomTemperatureSensorGas TightShaft SealBearingTemperatureSensorPump VibrationSensorPump CasingTemperatureSensorBearingTemperatureSensorPump DischargePump Suction1.3/1.3.1 Page 1 of 4Cargo Oil Pump TurbineMotorisedSteam SupplyValveMotorisedSteam Exhaust ValveLO PrimingPumpTrip ResetsN.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1.3 CARGO PUMPS1.3.1 MAIN CARGO PUMPSCargo PumpsManufacturer: Shinko Industries LtdType: Steam turbine driven vertical centrifugal pumpNo. of sets : 3 Capacity: 5,500m3/hModel (Pump): KV 500-2 (Turbine): RVR-2Speed (Pump): 1,090 rpm 3% (Turbine): 6,983 rpmRating: 2,680kWTank Cleaning PumpManufacturer: Shinko Industries LtdType: Steam turbine driven vertical centrifugal pumpNo. of sets : 1Capacity: 3,000m3/hModel (Pump): KV450-3 (Turbine): RX2Speed (Pump): 1,410 rpm 3% (Turbine): 7,093 rpmRating: 1,470kWGeneralThe main cargo pump system consists of three vertical centrifugal single stage cargo pumps. They are situated at the bottom of the pump room and are driven by a three stage impulse steam turbine and intermediate shaft passing into the pump room through a bulkhead gland. The pumps are each equipped with an automatic unloading system.Procedure for the Operation of Cargo PumpsPre-Operation Checksa) The chief officer/duty deck officer should notify the duty engineer of cargo pump requirements. The duty engineer will then make the cargo oil pumps ready for operation.b) Before the cargo pumps, including the COW pump, are run up the duty cargo officer is to: Ensure the pump discharge valves are closed Open the pump and line suction valves fully Ensure the pump volute casings are vented until liquid appearsSee section 1.3.3 for the precautions necessary to prime the lines to the COPTs.StartingWhen the auxiliary systems for the operation of the cargo pump turbines are in operation and steam lines are fully warmed through and the drains clear, control can be passed to the CCR. At the local control panel(s) at the turbine side the control selection switch(s) must be set to REMOTE. The steam inlet and exhaust valve on each turbine will now be fully open. The warming through operation of the turbines will now be performed from the Super Cargo XL mimic panels in the CCR. a) From the Cargo Pump Turbine mimic screen select the COPTs to be warmed through ready for operation. Place the mouse cursor over the COPT icon and right click with the mouse button, the pump command faceplate will now open. The top left hand corner will indicate the control mode the COPT is in, either MANUAL, LOCAL or REMOTE. For control of the COPTs from the CCR the system must be set in REMOTE at the local control panel. b) With the cursor click on the WARMING UP button on the COPT faceplate. This will initiate the warming up cycle, the pump speed will be maintained at approximately 250 rpm during this period and the WARMING UP button will flash. On completion of the warming up phase the WARMING UP button will go to a steady light.c) During the warm up period if the discharge pressure rises above 4kg/cm2, open the pump discharge valve gradually. The duty engineer will check that there is no abnormal noise or vibration in the turbine and the reduction gear. If an abnormal state is noticed, the turbine will be stopped immediately and the problem investigated.d) The duty engineer will trip the turbine(s) by operating the hand trip knob to confirm that the governor control valve closes immediately. The trip will then be reset. The pump discharge valve should be shut before the pump is run up again. The COPTs should also be tested from the CCR. e) When all of the COPT trips have been tested initiate the WARMING UP again on the required pumps to be used. As the turbines are already in a warmed up condition, the warming up phase will only take approximately one minute. When the pump discharge pressure rises above 4kg/cm2 open the pump discharge valve gradually.f) When the warming up operation is complete the pumps can be set to minimum speed by pressing the START button on the faceplate with the mouse cursor. The pumps speed will now run up to the minimum governor setting.g) The INC. (increase speed) and DEC. (decrease speed) buttons on the COPT faceplate are used to regulate the pump speed; the pump speed is increased or decreased by 10 rpm for every click of the corresponding button.Stoppinga) Decrease the turbine speed gradually from the COPT faceplate using the onscreen DEC. button.b) Stopping is possible by operating either the remote stop(s) or the hand trip on the turbine. The pump discharge valve should be shut before the pump turbine is stopped.c) Close the pump suction valves.If a COPT is stopped for more than 30 minutes then a full warm-up cycle must be completed.1.3/1.3.1 Page 2 of 4NO.3 COP XRemoteSPEED (rpm)SPEED (rpm)150015001000100050050000FLOWFLOWFLOWFLOW DISCH.DISCH.DISCH.DISCH.

This connects to the manifolds outboard of the manifold valves.Operation of the Stripping Pumpa) Check that the steam supply from the engine room is available, the system is warmed through and that all the drains have been run clear of any condensate locally in the pump room. Ensure that the steam inlet and exhaust isolators at the stripping pump are open, HS031V and HS004V.b) From the Super Cargo XL control mimic set the pipeline for the operation required. Open the pump discharge valve.To Start the Pumpa) With the mouse cursor on the mimic panel, point to the stripping pump, using the right reference button, single click to open the faceplate.b) With the mouse cursor point to START, using the right button, single click to request the task.c) The pump will now run up to a default setting 10 strokes per minute. The steam inlet pressure to the pump, pump suction and discharge pressures, pump stroke and flow are all indicated at the top of the faceplate both digitally and as bar graphs. To Change the Speed of the Pumpa) With the stripping pump faceplate open, use the mouse cursor to select either the INC. or DEC. buttons. It is also possible to control the stripping pump speed from the digital read out/control panel on the cargo control console.(Note: Under no load conditions the speed of the pump will increase, therefore a good watch should be kept on the pump when it is coming to the end of suction.)b) Each single click with the mouse cursor on the selected button will increase or decrease the pump speed by 1 rpm.To Stop the Pumpa) With the stripping pump faceplate open, use the mouse cursor to select the STOP button. b) With the mouse cursor over the STOP button, single click to request the task.

It utilises the cargo oil pumps to complete the stripping operation which reduces unloading time. The operation is fully automated.The basic principle of the system is to automatically prevent the suction of gas into the pump, thus enabling the cargo oil pump to complete the discharge without using a conventional small capacity reciprocating pump.The gas drawn in from the bellmouth tank suction and the cargo oil vapour produced in the suction line are separated from the cargo oil in the separator, on the suction side of the cargo oil pump. The gases gather at the top of the separator from where they are extracted by the vacuum pump system.When a large volume of gas enters the separator during the stripping stage, the liquid level in the separator drops. This would normally cause the pump to lose suction and stop pumping. To prevent this condition, the opening of the discharge valve of the cargo oil pump is controlled in proportion to the liquid level of the separator and adjusts the flow rate accordingly. The lower the liquid level falls, the more the discharge valve closes. If the liquid level falls below the minimum set value, the discharge valve closes fully. Component Description Separator (A1)Manufacturer: Shinko Industries Ltd.No. of sets: 3 Volume per separator: 4.86m3The separator is a tank on the suction side of the cargo oil pump. It contains an integrated lattice screen (A20), which assists in the separation of the gas from the liquid and protects the pump from damage by ingress of debris. The vapour collects at the top of the separator where it is extracted by the vacuum pump system (C1). A level transmitter (A3) is mounted on the side of each separator. The transmitter converts the liquid level to a pneumatic signal which controls the discharge valve (B1), vacuum pumps (C2) and gas extraction valve (C30).Discharge Control Valve (B1)No. of sets: 3Type: Pneumatically operated, non-tight butterfly valveThe discharge control valve (B1) is a butterfly type valve driven by a pneumatic cylinder and controls the pump capacity. The valve is controlled remotely either by the automatic control signal from the level transmitter (A3) on the separator, or by the manual control signal from the manual loader on the control panel in the cargo control room. The selector switch is used to select automatic or manual control of the discharge valve. Three-way cocks are situated locally to enable the discharge valve to be opened in an emergency. A valve position gauge on the cargo mimic in the cargo control console indicates the position of this valve.Vacuum Pump Unit (C1) and Vacuum Pumps (C2)Manufacturer: Shinko Industries Ltd.Model: NSW100Capacity: 630m3/hMaximum vacuum: 550mm HgNo. of pumps: 4There are two sets of vacuum pump units which can draw off vapour from the seporators. Each set comprises of a sealing tank and two vacuum pumps, selection of the duty vacuum pump unit is made on the control panel in the cargo control room. The vacuum pumps are the horizontal water ring type, each driven by an electric motor through an intermediate shaft which passes through the bulkhead from the engine room. The pumps extract the gas from the top of the separators (A1) and discharge it to the port slop tank. The pumps (C2) are automatically started and stopped by a pressure switch which is operated by the pneumatic signal from the level transmitter (A3). The pumps can also be started and stopped by means of the control switch on the control panel in the cargo control room.Each pump is equipped with a screw-down non-return suction valve (C16) to prevent sealing water and gases from flowing back to the gas extraction line. The sealing water tank (C6) separates the gas from the sealing water and acts as a reservoir for the supply of sealing water to the vacuum pumps.Gas Extraction Valve (C30)No. of sets: 3The gas extraction valve (C30) is a pneumatically operated piston type valve. This is installed in the gas extraction line leading from the top of the separator (A1), and is opened and closed by a solenoid valve controlled through a pressure switch, which is operated from the level transmitter (A3).This valve opens when the separator level is less than 50% and closes when it returns to 70% or more.Drain Tank (H1)Any liquid (fresh water or cargo oil) which overflows or is drained down from the vacuum pump unit is stored in this tank which is emptied by the stripping pump via non-return valve on the tank and valve CL270V on the stripping pump suction line. The level in this tank is indicated on the control panel in the cargo control room. The drain tank has a capacity of 2m3.1.3/1.3.3 Page 2 of 5N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftMONITORING1MONITORING2OPERATION4/Jan/2003 20:42REPOSEAFTDRAFT(m)FOREPORTSTBDTRIM(m)HomeMenu WindowExecute Hold Reject HoldListAssociatedScreenAck.BuzzerStopPageUpPageDownHEEL(deg.)SYSTEMUTILITYAUS FOR CARGO (1/4)AUS FOR CARGO (1/4)VACUUM PUMP UNITVACUUM PUMP UNITAutoAutoAutoAutoNO.1V.P.NO.1V.P.NO.2V.P.NO.2V.P.ManualManualManualManualStartStartStartStartStopStopStopStop1.V.P. 2.V.P.1.V.P. 2.V.P.2.V.P. 1.V.P.2.V.P. 1.V.P.V.P.StartSequence(Auto)V.P.StartSequence(Auto)AutoAutoAutoAutoNO.3V.P.NO.3V.P.NO.4V.P.NO.4V.P.ManualManualManualManualStartStartStartStartStopStopStopStop3.V.P. 4.V.P.3.V.P. 4.V.P.4.V.P. 3.V.P.4.V.P. 3.V.P.V.P.StartSequence(Auto)V.P.StartSequence(Auto)V.P.

The level can be topped up by opening the filling valve from the domestic supply C17.b) Ensure that the control air supply is available and the air supply unit is drained of any condensate.c) Check that the exhaust suction isolating valves are open on the vacuum pumps d) Confirm that the drain tank is empty, if necessary empty the tank with the stripping pump.e) Through the Super Cargo XL control display set the cargo oil pump automatic stripping system as follows: Set the AUS CONTROL to START. Set the DISCH VALVE to MANU. Set GEV to MANU CLOSE. It is very important that this valve is closed while the separator is being filled, due to the head of cargo oil that will come flooding into the cargo oil line from the cargo tanks. Set AUTO FINISH to OFF. Set the AFTER STRIPPING to AUTO STOP or KEEP RUN. Select the duty vacuum pump unit, either No.1VP unit or No.2 VP unit. Select the vacuum pumps No.1 and No.2 (No.1 VP unit) or No.3 and No.4 (No.2 VP unit) to MANUAL operation. It is very important at this stage when the separator and cargo oil lines are being filled that the pumps are in the off position, so that cargo oil cannot be carried over from the separator into the vacuum pumps due to the head of fluid. Select the run order for the vacuum pumps, either No.1 lead and No.2 lag, or vice versa for No.1 VP unit, or No.3 and No.4 or vice versa for No.2 VP unit. Reset the VP and GEV interlocks.f) Set the cargo lines in order to slowly prime the separators to the normal working 70% level and pump casings When the lines are set, open one cargo suction valve slightly to prime the lines, separators and pump casings. Open each pump discharge valve slightly to vent off any air from the casing.g) When the system is fully primed open the required cargo oil tank suction valves.h) Commence discharging the required cargo oil tanks. When the system has become stable set the VP and GEV icons on the Super Cargo XL display to AUTO.i) Set the vacuum pump No.1 VP and No.2 VP or No.3 and No.4, which ever is the selected duty system to AUT. This allows the vacuum pump to be available as required.While the liquid level in the cargo oil tanks is sufficient to ensure that the separator level remains above 70%, the automatic unloading system is not required.As the cargo oil tank level falls, the suction pressure also falls and approaches the vapour pressure of the liquid being pumped. Part of the liquid will turn to vapour and accumulate at the top of the separator (A1) and, as a result, the separator level begins to fall.When the separator level falls below 50%, a pressure switch is actuated by the pneumatic signal from the level transmitter (A3) and the vacuum pump (C2) starts. At the same time the gas extraction valve (C30) opens and the discharge valve (B1) is throttled in by a corresponding amount.The vacuum pump extracts the gases and the separator level rises. When the separator level recovers above 70%, the gas extraction valve (C30) closes, and 20 seconds later, the vacuum pump stops. The discharge valve (B1) then opens. As the tank level falls further towards the bottom of the tank, turbulence occurs around the suction pipe and gas begins to be drawn into the bellmouth of the tank suction. This gas is separated in the same manner as previously described. The vapour is vented off from the vacuum pump seal tank to the port slop tank.When the tank level falls further, the liquid surface around the bellmouth, becomes violently disturbed and a large volume of gas can be sucked from the bottom of the bellmouth. Under these conditions the liquid in the separator falls to a level where the signal air pressure, from the level transmitter, causes the discharge valve to close and decrease the flow. The speed of liquid flowing into the bellmouth decreases and the disturbance around the bellmouth also decreases, thus the amount of gas being drawn into the bellmouth decreases.When the volume of gas being drawn in to the bellmouth becomes less than the extraction capacity of the vacuum pump, the separator level begins to rise and at the same time the discharge valve begins to open gradually and the pump discharge flow begins to increase. In order to achieve the best deballasting conditions when the ballast tank level has become low, reduce the pump speed in order to maintain the discharge valve open position at above 40%.This cycle will repeat until the discharge valve is opening only slightly while the amount of gas drawn in is increasing. When the separator level falls to below 5%, the SEPARATOR LEVEL LOW, on the control display lights up, showing that unloading has reached the stripping stage.As the stripping of the cargo tanks tank advances, even though the vacuum pump is running continuously, the level in the separator does not rise. As a result the discharge valve remains closed most of the time. Under these conditions it is advisable to reduce the speed of the cargo pump to avoid overheating of the pump casing and possible failure of the pump seals.When the SEPARATOR LEVEL LOW lamp has remained on for three minutes the STRIPPING FINISH flashes and the buzzer sounds, signifying completion of discharge.If the AFTER STRIPPING icon has been set to AUTO STOP then the cargo pump will stop automatically at this stage. However, if the icon has been set to KEEP RUN, then the cargo pump will continue to run. If the residual liquid appears to warrant more stripping it is possible to control the pump and the discharge valve manually, in which case set the AUTO FINISH ON/OFF selector to OFF to release the trip condition of the vacuum pump and the gas extraction valve. This operation will allow the vacuum pump and gas extraction valve to return to automatic control if conditions warrant it. When it can be judged that there is no advantage in operating the pump continuously, the pump can be stopped manually.To transfer over to discharging another tank, reduce the pump speed to minimum and set the AUTO STRIPPING icon to AUTO STOP or KEEP RUN.Set the pump discharge valve setting to 0% and MANUAL control. If necessary, due to the head of cargo oil in the next tank, it is advisable to prime the separator and pump as previously described ie., the vacuum pumps set to OFF and the GEV valves closed, to stop priming the separator up to the vacuum pumps and in order to protect the system from fluid hammer. If the cargo oil tanks are low, open the required cargo tank suction valve fully and set the AUTO FINISH to OFF, then reset the VP and GEV interlocks. Cargo will now be drawn into the separator, when the level in the separator reaches 70% the vacuum pumps will stop.When stripping of all the required tanks is completed, stop the cargo oil pumps and set the AUS CONTROL on the Super Cargo display to OFF. Empty the drain tank with the stripping pump to the slop tank or ashore via the MARPOL line.1.3/1.3.3 Page 4 of 5N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftCAUTIONRunning the pump in the manual condition may result in the pump running dry, or running with the discharge valve closed longer than the manufacturers recommendation, resulting in serious damage to the pump and mechanical seals.When the vessel carries high vapour pressure cargo (HVPC) which is classified as a cargo which has a Reid pressure above 8 psi, there is the risk of excessive pump cavitation during discharge. This is due to the cargo boiling off under the effect of a low suction vacuum pressure. Figure 1 gives the relationship between the Reid pressure and the true vapour pressure (absolute).When an HVPC type cargo is carried, strict observation should be made to the cargo pump suction pressure to ensure it does not fall below the minimum suction pressure. As the level in the cargo tanks falls to a low level, the suction pressure will increase. If this pressure falls below the minimum valve excessive vapour will be generated in the pump casing with resultant pump cavitation. The relationship between Reid vapour pressure, pump speed and minimum suction pressure for an HVPC cargo can be seen in figure 2. In order to maintain the discharge within the limits there are two possible operations that can be used: Reduce the pump speed thereby lowering the minimum suction value. This will achieve the desired affect although it will increase the time taken to finish the cargo operations. The pump speed should be reduced in steps corresponding to the increase in the suction pressure. Consideration should be made of any limitations placed on the ship by the receiving terminal to maintain a minimum discharge pressure. Close in on the pump discharge valve when the minimum speed has been reached in order to maintain a required discharge preesure.In order to help reduce the problems in pumping HVPC cargoes, consideration should be given to the tanks into which it is loaded. As a guide it is best to load these cargoes in the forward wing tanks if possible, so that when the ship has a stern trim, the head from these tanks will be maintained for a longer period.4 5 6 7 8 9True Vapour Pressure (Absolute psi)Minimum Suction Pressure (mmHg, kg/cm2)LiquidTemperature10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19340C50C10C20C30C40C50C10C20C30CReid VapourPressure = 10 psiReid VapourPressure = 8 psiReid VapourPressure = 6 psiFigure 14 5 6 7 8 9True Vapour Pressure (Absolute psi)LiquidTemperaturePumpSpeed (rpm)10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19340C50C10C600545700800900100010906005457008009001000109020C30C40C50C10C-500-500 -500 -300 -200 -100-600-400 -300 -200 -100 0 0.10 0.10.2 0.3 0.420C30CReid VapourPressure = 10 psi-113mmHg650 rpm850 rpm-60mmHg11.1 psiReid VapourPressure = 8 psiReid VapourPressure = 6 psiFigure 21.3/1.3.3 Page 5 of 5N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1.3.4 CARGO VALVESAll the principal cargo valves are hydraulically operated from control signals from the Super Cargo XL screen displays in the cargo control centre. The Super Cargo XL operating system is described in section 3.1.An indicator mimic display is located on the cargo control console which gives indication of the cargo valve positions.Wafer type butterfly valves are generally used throughout, with lugged type butterfly valves used for ship side valves and manifold connections. All manually operated valves are supplied with a manual indicator. Hydraulic pipes are led directly to each valve from their respective solenoid valve cabinets. In the case of a solenoid control power failure of the valve, it is possible to operate the valves by manually operating the respective pushbuttons on the solenoid rack. For emergency use, two portable hydraulic hand pumps are supplied.The following valves have a throttling function with an intermediate position indicator and can be stopped at any position between open and closed: Cargo oil tank main suctions Cargo oil tank stripping suctions Cargo oil pump discharge valves, automatic control via the AUS stripping system Ballast tank main suctions Ballast tank stripping suctions, automatic control via the AUS stripping system Ballast pump discharge valves Tank cleaning pump discharge Cargo manifold valvesThe remaining hydraulic valves do not have a throttle facility and are either fully open or fully shut.Procedure to Operate a Valve using the Super Cargo XL Mimic Screena) On the required mimic panal place the mouse curser on the valve required, using the left reference button, single click to open the faceplate.b) For the intermediate controlled valves, place the curser on the slider bar and while holding down the left mouse button drag the slider bar to the required position. The valve open or shut indicator will flash until it reaches the required position, thereafter the light indication will become steady. A green bar graph indicator next to the valve on screen will also show its approximate position. When no colour is shown in the bar graph it indicates that the valve is shut.When a valve faceplate is active on the screen the valve number will be highlighted. If a number of valve faceplates are open on the screen at the same time, clicking on a desired valve will bring that valve to a highlighted condition ready for operation.The faceplate for each cargo pump discharge valve controlled by the AUS system will also indicate the separator level as indicated below. c) Valves with only fully open or fully closed funtions only display the following buttons:d) To operate the valve select either the OPEN or SHUT button with the cursor and left click with the mouse, the button will flash until the fully open or shut condition is reached after which the light will become steady.1.3/1.3.4 Page 1 of 1OpenOpenShutShut TankTankAutoAutoManualManualV.

The purpose of the PV valve is to provide automatic control of pressure differentials during cargo operations and during the voyage and to avoid damage to the cargo tanks.FunctionDuring the loading of a cargo the pressure build up in the tanks lifts the pressure disc from its seat and the excessive tank pressure is relieved to a preset level. On attaining the preset pressure the disc reseats itself.During the unloading of a cargo, should the vacuum build up in the tanks, the vacuum disc lifts from its seat and the tank vacuum drops to a preset limit. On attaining this preset limit the disc reseats itself. As per SOLAS requirements, both the high velocity PV valves must be tested before the commencement of cargo operations. To check the operation of the overpressure valve, operate the check lifting handle on the side of the body.Check that lifting of the vacuum valve is accomplished by pushing up on the check lift bar and releasing. Both valves are self-closing when in the properly maintained condition.During cold weather operations, regular checks should be made to ensure that the pressure/vacuum valves do not get blocked by ice coverings which would otherwise inhibit the correct functioning of the valves. Flame screens can also become blocked when humid air vented from a cargo tank condenses and freezes on the gauze flame screens.Each cargo tank is fitted with a purge pipe which extends into the tanks, terminating 1m above the tank bottom. The purge pipes are fitted with a swing lid and a flame screen. Fitted to the riser pipe leading to the high velocity PV valves is a spur with a purge pipe type lid fitted. This pipe can be used in assisting in the tank purging process.Illustration 1.3.5b Purge PipeFlame ScreenFlame Screen1.3/1.3.5 Page 2 of 2Cargo Oil Tank Purge PipeN.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY1.4 Inert Gas System - Main and Top-Up 1.4.1 System Descriptions and Operation 1.4.2 Inert Gas Topping Up Generator 1.4.3 Maintenance (Routine Maintenance in Operation Only)Illustrations 1.4.1a Inert Gas System in the Engine Room 1.4.1b Inert Gas System on Deck 1.4.1c Main Inert Gas Control Panel 1.4.1d Inert Gas Subcontrol Panel 1.4.2a Topping up Generator Mimic PanelIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPICIPIPSLSCILSLSLSLSLSLSLSLSLSLSLSPIPSTIPSPIFIPIPSLSTSSGLSTITITI PXPITITIPI TX TSTITITAHPIPIPILSSLSLSSSSSNo.1Blower50%No.2Blower50%No.3Blower50%CombustionAir BlowerSSSSMinimum2500mmDeckSealLowerGrating inPump RoomSteamSupplySteamReturnTITITIIllustration 1.4.1a Inert Gas System in the Engine RoomKeyInert GasSea WaterSaturated SteamExhaust GasCondensateControl AirInstrumentationWS031VWS032V WS041VWS033VBilge, Fireand GSPumpsNo.1 Auxiliary BoilerExhaust Gas UptakeFrom No.1 Auxiliary BoilerFD Fan DuctTo FunnelTopFrom No.2 Auxiliary BoilerFD Fan DuctOutsideEngine RoomOutsideEngine RoomOxygenAnalyserScrubberToppingUpGeneratorNo.2 Auxiliary BoilerExhaust Gas UptakeFrom 7kg/cm2Steam Systemfor SootblowingLightSourceReceiveUnitNG005VNG006VNG001VNG002V NG003VNG004VNG007VNG028VNG027VLightSourceReceiveUnitFromMarine Diesel OilService TankInert Gas Top Up Generator Marine Diesel Oil Pump(50kg/h x25bar)ScrubberCooling SeaWater Pump(300m3/h)Top-Up IGGCooling SeaWater Pump(35m3/h)WS054VWS056VWS053VWS055VNG025VNG008VNG011V NG018VNG024VNG027VNG029VNG041VNG017VNG012VNG013VNG009VNG010VNo.1No.2 Inert Gas Deck SealSea Water Pumps(3m3/h)Sea Water Connection Cross MainPP PPPP PPPPPPWS040VNG020V1.4/1.4.1 Page 1 of 7N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1.4 INERT GAS SYSTEM - MAIN AND TOP-UP General DescriptionManufacturer: Hamworthy KSEType: Moss Flue Gas SystemCapacity: 20,625m3/hThe inert gas system (IGS) consists of a main inert gas plant, using boiler flue gas and an independent topping up inert gas plant generator, to provide a gas explosion protection system for the cargo oil tanks and slop tanks. This is achieved by maintaining a slight overpressure in the tanks at all times.Whilst discharging the cargo, liquid pumped out of the tanks is replaced by inert gas. At all times, pressure of the inert gas in the tanks is maintained slightly above atmospheric pressure. The IG used on this vessel is produced either by a conventional flue gas plant, which cools and cleans exhaust gas from the boiler uptake, or by an independent topping up generator system, which burns marine diesel oil at a very low excess air setting. The resulting exhaust gas is cooled and cleaned before being fed into the cargo tanks.The main system is designed to maintain a positive tank pressure of 400mmWG, with a tank O2 content of 5% maximum.The system is used during: Cargo oil unloading Hydrocarbon gas purging Tank cleaning Crude oil washing Reducing the O2 content in the tank volume1.4.1 SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONS AND OPERATIONThe flue gas from the boiler uptakes is led into the plant, then cooled and cleaned. The gas is then distributed by the fans to the cargo oil and slop tanks via a deck water seal and distribution piping. The system is used to purge the ullage spaces in the cargo oil tanks of hydrocarbon gases and replace them with an inert gas, keeping the oxygen content below 5% by volume.When the boilers are operating efficiently, the composition of the IG by volume should be: Carbon dioxide (CO2) 13.0% Oxygen (O2) 5.0% Sulphur dioxide (SO2) less than 100ppm Nitrogen (N2) BalanceHowever, during low boiler load operation, the oxygen content of the boiler exhaust gas will tend to rise, due to the higher excess air required for good combustion.WARNINGWhen running with the boiler on a low load, the flue gas blower may draw air down the boiler funnel uptake resulting in an out of range O2 acceptability. The system consists of the following components:Scrubber Manufacturer: Hamworthy KSENo. of sets: 1Type: Moss TriplexThe scrubber is of the 3 stage tower type and consists of: 1st stage: Central tube with water injection 2nd stage: Mesh wet filter 3rd stage: Open water mist spray towerHot flue gas drawn from the boiler uptake, is sprayed with sea water in the central venturi tube. In this 1st stage in the scrubbing process the flue gas is pre-washed and cooled.Efficient cooling of the gases is achieved due as a result of evaporation occurring to some of the supplied water when mixed with the hot combustion gases. At the lower end of the central tube the gases are deflected by a deflection screen giving a minimum of pressure loss and the best possible distribution of the gases to the wet filter, thus avoiding gases channelling through the scrubber.In the 2nd stage the combustion gases are further cooled and cleaned in a mesh type wet filter of the scrubber tower, which effectively prevents water droplets from being carried over with the outlet gas flow.The extensive wire/surface volume ratio secures a high cooling/cleaning effect with a very low height of the pad. The filter is effectively self-cleaning, being flushed with water from the open spray tower, which is the 3rd stage in the cooling/cleaning process.The water mist from the sprays is very efficient in removal of the sulphur content in the gases.The mesh demister situated at the top of the tower prevents water droplets from being carried over into the outlet gas flow.An independent cooling sea water supply pump supplies the scrubber. Auxiliary cooling water can be provided from a crossover with the Bilge, Fire / GS pumps. The effluent water from the scrubber tower is discharged directly overboard.Inert Gas BlowersManufacturer: Flebu TiconNo. of sets: 3Type: Centrifugal single stageCapacity 10,300m3/hThree electrically driven IG fans are supplied each rated at 50% capacity. In normal operation there will be two fans running delivering 100% of the plant capacity with the third fan acting as a standby unit. They draw the gas from the boiler uptakes, through the scrubber and deliver to the deck distribution system with sufficient overpressure to form a high velocity gas jet at the inlet to the cargo tanks. The each blower casing is provided with water spray nozzles and a drain for cleaning the blower impeller when the blowers are shut down.1.4/1.4.1 Page 2 of 7N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftNG041VNG029VIllustration 1.4.1b Inert Gas System on DeckND027ND009ND002ND025 ND022ND023 ND014 ND011ND005ND029 ND030ND031 ND032Spill Tank (Starboard)Spill Tank (Port)ND006ND007 ND008ND020ND004ND026 ND024BA341Minimum2500mmDeckSealLowerGrating inPump RoomNo.5 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.5 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Centre)VentRiserNo.5 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Port)Slop Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)VoidSlop Tank(Starboard)No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)Upper DeckToTransmitterPanelPump RoomWater Ballast Main LineDeck SealWaterSupplySteamSupplySteamReturnShoreConnectionPortShoreConnectionStb'dEngine RoomBulkheadND001 ND003ND043ND042To Cargo Oil Main LineKeyInert GasSea WaterSteamCondensatePurge Pipe LocationsND019ND021ND018ND013ND015ND010ND012PVBreakerND016NG017VNG018VP PND0171.4/1.4.1 Page 3 of 7N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftDeck Water Seal Manufacturer: HamworthyNo. of sets: 1Type: DisplacementSealing height: 2,500mmWGThe deck water seal is of the displacement type. The water inside the inner chamber is displaced into the outer chamber by the IG pressure during operation. In the event of a loss of gas pressure, the water immediately falls back and closes the seal, thereby preventing any back-flow of cargo gases.Any back pressure from the cargo tank area will induce an overpressure in the reservoir chamber above the water level and force water into the centre tube. The water level in the centre tube will rise and thus prevent gas from leaking past the seal.The deck water seal is equipped with a steam heating coil for use in cold weather conditions. A sight glass fitted with a swing down protection plate is provided to enable the level in the water seal to be checked. A pressure switch, fitted in the sea water supply line, initiates a low pressure alarm and shuts down the IG plant in the event of a water supply failure. A low level alarm float switch is fitted to the deck seal chamber. Overfilling of the deck water seal is prevented by a weir and overboard discharge. The deck seal is constantly supplied with sea water from one of two supply pumps, the standby pump will be set to automatic cut-in should the running pump fail.When the plant is operating and IG is admitted to the deck distribution system, the pressure from the blowers will force the contents of the centre tube into the reservoir, letting the gas flow freely through the top part of the reservoir chamber. Pressure/Vacuum BreakersNo. of sets: 1Type: Dual pipe, liquid filledOpening pressure: 1,890mmWGOpening vacuum: -630mmWGCapacity rating: 20,625m3/hA pressure/vacuum breaker is fitted to a branch off the main IG line on deck, with the purpose of safeguarding against over or under pressurisation of the cargo tanks. Under normal conditions it is filled with a 50% fresh water to 50% ethylene glycol concentration. Flue Gas Isolating ValvesAs the flue gas isolating valves are subject to high temperature variations they are therefore non-tight in the shut position. Gas leakage into the system is prevented by the automatic provision of an air sealing from the boiler FD fan when the flue gas system is shut down and the boiler is operating. A manually operated valve is mounted close to each boiler uptake duct. Soot cleaning nozzles are provided on the boiler side of each uptake valve, steam supply is from the 7kg/cm2 range. Double acting cylinders, controlled by solenoid valves, pneumatically operate the master steam soot cleaning valve. The flue gas isolating valves should be steam cleaned before flue gas is directed into the inert gas system.Sealing Air Valve To prevent boiler flue gas leaking past the boiler uptake valves when the plant is shut down, a sealing air supply line is fitted. This runs from the discharge side of the boiler forced draught fans, to the pipeline between the boiler flue gas isolating valve and the downstream main valve. When the boiler uptake valves are open, the sealing air pneumatic piston operated valve is closed and vice versa.Flow Control ValvesButterfly control valves operated by pneumatic actuators, will control the flow through the system. To protect the blower motors, the valves are held in the closed position during blower start-up period. Blow Off ValveA butterfly valve, NG017V is provided for gas venting. It is pneumatically operated and used to control the inert gas main pressure. When the plant is started with a blower running and the main deck line control valve closed, the blow off valve will open, relieving the gas from the blower outlet to atmosphere, thus preventing overheating of the running blower.IG Main Control ValveA main control valve, NG018V driven by a pneumatic double acting actuator, is provided on the main line. During start up and shut down the valve is held in the closed position. When the IG is within the minimum requirements this valve will open and direct IG onto the IG main. An air reservoir located adjacent to the oxygen analyser ensures closing of the valve in the event that instrument air pressure is lost. When the IG system is shut down a vent line valve between the main control valve and the deck seal will open and relieve the pressure, thus ensuring the deck seal is effectively sealed.Oxygen AnalyserManufacturer: PanametricsModel: XM02It is of the utmost importance that the oxygen content of the IG is kept below 5% by volume. A fixed oxygen analyser is installed, which samples the inert gas after it has passed through the individual blowers and on the IG discharge from the topping-up generator.Two OX82 portable oxygen analysers and two RIKEN NP-237H portable hydrocarbon gas analysers are also supplied.RecorderManufacturer: FUS1 ElectronicA two pen strip chart recorder fitted into the sub-control panel in the cargo control room continuously charts the O2 content and the deck IG main pressure. Deck pressure low and O2 content high alarm limits are preset at the two pen recorder. Operation of Main SystemThe flue gas system main control panel is situated in the engine control room (ECR). On the front of the panel the system is represented in the form of a mimic diagram, with appropriate indications and pushbuttons for starting/stopping the deck seal pumps, scrubber pump, IG blowers, selection of boiler uptake, mode selection, delivery to deck or recirculation, plus alarm stop and acknowledgement. A sub-panel in the cargo control room contains pushbuttons, used for starting and stopping the supply of gas to the deck main line. The system is represented in the form of a mimic diagram with indicators and LEDs. The panel also contains a two pen recorder/indicator unit.A sub-panel on the bridge contains indication of the deck main inert gas pressure and an alarm indicator.1.4/1.4.1 Page 4 of 7N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 1.4.1c Main Inert Gas Control PanelFUEL OILh 83PAI185PAH180TAH191mm WGmm WGO2CPAI180PAI184-GPAI183h/s 53h/s 103-1h/s 125-1h/s 125-2h/s 104-1h/s 105-1h/s 128h 27LAh193-GIAI181-1TAh188PAI187PAII182PAh182AAh/I204LAI181-2IAI181-3LAI194PAI189IG-45 IG-44RUNh 29h 25h 19h 14I-12Vh 4h 5-Fh 12h 1149h 126-1h 126-2h 11h 10h 103h 104h 105h 300h 6h 7h 8 h 2h 9h 24-2PAI184-FTAh192LAh193-Fh 129RUNh 109h 5-Gh-124h 24-1h 26h 260BA 200AIRCOMBUSTIONAIRINSTRUMENTAIRSEAWATERSUPPLYBOILER 1UPTAKEBOILER 2UPTAKEBOILER SOOTBLOWINGSEALING AIRSEAWATERAUX.

Press the corresponding blower selection pushbutton, either No.1, 2 or 3. When selection is made, on those blowers selected the inlet valves will open, the FLUE GAS READY indicator lamp will now illuminate.h) Operate the PUSH TO CLEAN pushbutton for several seconds to clean the soot from the flue gas isolating valve.i) The system is now ready running up. Press the FLUE GAS START pushbutton, the following sequence will take place: The sea water inlet valve to the scrubber tower and its overboard discharge valve will open. Additionally the vent to atmosphere will open, NG017V. After a period of ten seconds the scrubber pump will start. The sea water delivery pressure must be established within 20 seconds otherwise the system will go into an alarm condition. After 22 seconds from initiation of start up the first blower will start running up, this will take approximately 30 seconds. When the first blower has reached running condition the second blower will start running up (if two blowers were selected). At the same time the first blower starts the selected boiler flue gas isolating valve will open and the sealing air valve will close. Five seconds after each blower has reached its running condition its outlet capacity valve will open. Flue gas will now be directed to atmosphere.When the plant is running correctly further operations are carried out from the cargo control room sub-control panel. j) Check that the two pen recorder is functioning correctly and that there is sufficient chart available.k) Ensure that the CO2 (carbon dioxide) content of the flue gas from the boiler is in excess of 13% and that the O2 (oxygen) content is lower than 5%.l) When the flue gas is within limits, press the SELECT CONS pushbutton.m) Adjust the deck pressure controller, situated on the sub-control control panel, to the desired pressure (between the high/low alarm limits of 200/800 mmWG).Stoppinga) On completion of inerting, operate the SELECT CONS pushbutton. The duty engineer will now connect the water washing hoses to the IG blowers in preparation for water washing the fan impeller(s). b) Operate the STOP pushbutton. The main IG to deck control valve will close and the vent to atmosphere control valve will open. The duty engineer will open the water washing drain valves then the water washing supply valves. The impeller will be washed during its run down period. At the same time as the stop button is pressed the boiler uptake valve will close and the sealing air valve will open.c) The scrubber pump will continue to run for a further 150 seconds before it is automatically shut down.b) Close the deck main isolator valve.Deck Main Pressure ControlThe pressure in the deck IG main is regulated by the deck pressure controller located on the sub-control panel. The controller compares the set pressure with the actual pressure obtained from a pressure transmitter located in the deck main and adjusts the gas regulating valve to maintain a flow through the system and prevent the fans overheating accordingly. The gas regulating valve is fitted with manual emergency operation.Gas FreeingThe plant is also used for purging the cargo tanks with fresh air during gas freeing operations as follows:a) Any cargo tank that is not to be gas freed must first be positively isolated with its spectacle blank swung into the closed position. Set up the deck distribution system for the operation to be carried out.b) On the blower(s) to be used operate the SELECT BLOWER pushbutton. The selected blower inlet valve will now open. c) Remove the blank from the air inlet goose neck h-260, the AIR VENT READY lamp will illuminate on the main control panel in the ECR.d) Press the START AIR VENT pushbutton, the selected blowers will now start up in a lead/lag configuration.e) Adjust the capacity regulating valve set point with the pushbuttons on the sub-control panel in the cargo control room to approximately 700mmWG.f) Operate the SELECT CONS pushbutton, this will now open the IG main to deck valve.Fresh air will now be delivered to the deck supply line in the same manner as inert gas. An alternative gas freeing method can be used for supplying fresh air into the cargo oil tanks, see section 2.6 Gas Freeing for details.1.4/1.4.1 Page 6 of 7N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 1.4.1d Inert Gas Sub-Control PanelFUEL OILh 83PAI185PAH180TAH191PAI180PAI184-GPAI183LAh193-GIAI181-1TAh188PAI187PAII182PAh182AAh/I204LAI181-2IAI181-3LAI194PAI189IG-45 IG-44h 19h 14I-12Vh 4h 5-Fh 12h 1149h 126-1h 126-2h 11h 10h 103h 104h 105h 300h 6h 7h 8 h 2h 9h 24-2PAI184-FTAh192LAh193-Fh 129h 109h 5-Gh-124h 24-1h 26h 260BA 200h 200AIRCOMBUSTIONAIRINSTRUMENTAIRSEAWATERSUPPLYBOILER 1UPTAKEBOILER 2UPTAKESEALING AIRSEAWATERAUX.

The inert gas is then delivered to the IG main through its capacity regulating valve. Excess gas is vented to atmosphere depending on requirements. With large deck demands the atmosphere control valve will be shut and all the inert gas led to the deck IG main. Conversely all gas will be vented to atmosphere when the deck pressure has reached its set point value.Procedure for the Operation of the Topping Up Generator (TUG)Automatic starting of the TUG is from the main control panel in the ECR or from the local panel at the TUG. The control panel contains the programmable controller, which takes care of the start, stop and alarm functions and the running mode. On the front of the panel the system is represented in the form of a mimic diagram, with appropriate indications.Starting - Automatica) Ensure the TUG cooling SW supply pump suction, discharge and overboard discharge valves are opened in the engine room. b) Check the calibration of the oxygen analyser.c) Ensure that the deck main IG valve is opened.d) Open the control air supply valve to the TUG control panel.e) On the main control panel in the ECR press the automatic sequence START TUG AUTO pushbutton. f) Check that all air is evacuated from the cooling jacket outlet.After 17 seconds the blower will start. After receiving a running signal from the blower, the IG capacity control valve will begin regulation. After 50 seconds the fuel oil pump will start and the ignition plug is activated. After activation of the main burner, the gas will purge through the vent valve for 50 seconds. 1.4/1.4.2/3 Page 1 of 2Illustration 1.4.2a Topping Up Generator Mimic PanelFUEL OILh 83PAI185PAh180PAH180TAH191PAI180PAI184-Gh 40h/s 123LAh193-GAAh/I204STARTSTOPh/s 108STARTSTOPGLOWONIGNONMAINBURNERONh/s 82STARTSTOPh 6h 109h 5-GBA200h 200INSTR.

The system will revert to the purge mode and shut down. The blower will continue to run for a cooling down period. After the cooldown period, the scrubber pump can be stopped. Starting - Manuala) Carry out the same procedure a) to d) as previously described for the automatic start then proceed as follows.b) On the main control panel in the ECR press the LOCAL TUG START pushbutton. Proceed to the local control panel and press the SELECT MANUAL START button.c) Start the sea water pump and combustion air blower using the start/stop buttons on the panel. Check that the jacket casing is vented of any air.d) Purge the furnace for 50 seconds then start the fuel oil pump using the start/stop button then operate the GLOWING ON button. After approximately 30 seconds operate the IGNITION ON button, wait a futher 5 seconds then operate the MAIN BURNER ON, fuel will now be admitted into the furnce. When the flame is established the FLAME ON light will illuminated. Wait a futher 5 seconds for the flame to establish itself then operate the IGNITION ON and GLOWING ON buttons to turn these two devices off.e) When all of the operational parameters are normal, i.e. pressure, temperature and O2 level, the gas can be directed to the IG main. On the sub-control panel in the CCR operate the SELECT CONS button to admit the IG into the main IG line on deck.Stopping - Manuala) To shut the plant down operate the SELECT CONS button on the sub-control panel in the CCR. b) Press the STOP button on the local control panel. The plant will continue to run for a short period in cooldown mode.Deck Main Pressure ControlThe deck main pressure is set by the potentiometer on the sub-control panel. The signal from this unit automatically controls the vent and capacity control valves.Control SystemsWhen the inert gas system is in use, the pneumatic control valve and the vent valve automatically control the pressure in the inert gas main. When the fan is stopped, the control valve, uptake valves, purge valve and fan outlet valves close automatically. All the valves utilise instrument air as the control medium. The tank and inert gas main isolating valves are manually operated.The manually operated valves in the system are fitted with microswitches, to provide indication of open/closed position on the mimic panel on the console.Alarms and Trips The following conditions give indication in the alarm system, and cause complete shutdown of the plant and closure of all automatic valves (except the effluent valve), including the sea water system: Sea water pump stopped Low instrument air pressure High water level in scrubber (Main) High water level in cooling tower (TUG) Power failure to control system

cargo oil tank plus one non-programmable submerged GC4000 type machine, apart from No.1 centre cargo oil tank which has two GC4000 machines. Each wing cargo oil tank has three 270FT units fitted. The two 20mm diameter nozzle units are located in the slop tanks, one per tank.Tank Mounted MachinesType: T-73No. of units: 4Nozzle size: 2 x 16mmCapacity: 48m3/hOperating pressure: 10kg/cm2Type: GC4000No. of units: 6Nozzle size: 25mmCapacity: 70m3/hOperating pressure: 10kg/cm2The T-73 machine is a submerged gun which is a turbine driven, non-programmable, double nozzle tank cleaning unit, and is used to complement the deck mounted unit by giving coverage to less accessible areas. Two units are fitted in each slop tank.A dedicated tank cleaning pump is fitted in this vessel. A main cargo oil pump can also be utilised as required.Tank Cleaning PumpManufacturer: Shinko Industries LtdType: Steam turbine driven vertical centrifugal pumpNo. of sets : 1Capacity: 3,000m3/hModel (Pump): KV450-3 (Turbine): RX2Speed (Pump): 1,410 rpm 3% (Turbine): 7,093 rpmRating: 1,470kWStripping PumpManufacturer: Shinko Industries Ltd.No. of sets: 1 Model: KPH425Type: Double stroke steam recipricatingSpeed maximum: 33 rpmCapacity: 450m3/h at 15kg/cm2Steam condition: 18kg/cm2Crude Oil Stripping EductorsManufacturer: TeamtecNo. of sets: 2Type: 10-13-14 d86Capacity: 700m3/h at 30mthDriving fluid: 1,005m3/h at 12kg/cm2The vessel is provided with a separate 400mm COW/tank cleaning line, with branches to each tank washing machine. The tank cleaning pump or any cargo pump is capable of supplying the drive fluid, whether oil or water.Stripping may be carried out using the stripping eductors, the automatic stripping system or the stripping pump.There is a tank cleaning heater which should be used when hot water washing is required. Additionally there are steam heating coils in each slop tank which are used to maintain the wash water temperature and aid in the separation of any oil in the wash water returns.The capacity of each cargo pump is adequate for supplying driving fluid to two eductors and tank cleaning machines for two cargo tanks. The suction capacity of the two eductors is in excess of 125% of the output of all the COW tank cleaning machines in any two of the cargo oil tanks. During washing, no more than two cargo tanks are to be washed at a time to enable the eductors to keep the tank bottom almost dry.The stripping pump can be used as well, but, by itself, will not keep two tanks almost dry.From operational experience it has been judged that effective washing of the tanks is obtained when a line pressure of 10kg/cm2 used. The graphs shown in illustration 2.5.2b give the relationship between the line pressure and the jet length and throughput for the 270FT machines. The capacity data of the machines previously mentioned are based on a operating pressure of 8kg/cm2 If the line pressure drops below 8kg/cm2 then washing should be stopped until the correct operating pressure can obtained. At no time should the pressure on COW washing line be raised above the line test pressure.1.5.2 MAINTENANCE (ROUTINE MAINTENANCE IN OPERATION ONLY)Deck and Bottom Mounted MachinesIt is not intended for these machines be removed from the tanks unless there has been an actual mechanical failure. In the event of such a failure, a lifting tripod, chain block and tools are provided and should be kept in good order. Normal maintenance will consist of ensuring that the control units and turbine assemblies are properly greased and lubricated, the filters are clear, that the machine is carrying out its programme and the stop valves are tight when not in operation.It is recommended that one third of the machines be retracted from the tanks, inspected and, if necessary, overhauled each year on a rotational basis. As this type of machine is non-programmable, the operation of the machine can be verified by its sound pattern.All other machines in the tank and in adjacent tanks should be shut off and the operation of the machine in question verified.1.5/1.5.1/2 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY1.6 Hydraulic Systems 1.6.1 Cargo and Ballast Valve Hydraulic Remote Control 1.6.2 Deck Anchoring and Mooring Hydraulic SystemIllustrations 1.6.1a Cargo Valve Remote Control System 1.6.2a Deck Anchoring and Mooring Hydraulic SystemIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftCL024VBA309VBA321VBA310VBA322VBA307VBA319VBA308VBA320VBA305VBA317VBA306VBA318VBA364VBA363VBA303VBA315VBA304VBA316VBA301VBA313VBA302VBA311VBA314VBA361VBA362VCL023VCL022VCL021VCL020VCL049VCL044VCL261VCL262VCL263VCL019VCL038VCL037VCL050VCL052VCL074VCL080VCL064VCL071VCL092VCL054VCL059VCL075VCL081VCL065VCL082VCL093VCL121VCL252VBA357VCL039VCL122VCL253VBA358VCL053VCL085VCL076VCL060VCL066VCL088VCL094VCL055VCL086VCL077VCL061VCL067VCL089VCL087VCL051VCL072VCL078VCL062VCL069VCL090VCL096VCL056VCL073VCL079VCL063VCL070VCL091VCL097VCL046VCL041VCL289VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL026VCL015VCL014VCL013VCL034VCL033VCL027VCL012VCL011VCL010VCL032VCL031VCL030VCL029VCL028VCL009VCL008VCL045VCL040VCL002VCL001VCL007VCL025VCL018VCL017VCL048VCL043VCL047VCL042VCL260VCL016VCL036VCL035VEW017VEW018VEW019VBA312VEW020VFD011VTL001VTL002VCL058VBA323VCL084VTL003VCL108VCL109VCL110VCL111VCL106VCL107VCL114VCL115VCL116VCL117VCL112VCL113VCL098VCL099VCL100VCL101VCL102VCL103VCL104VCL105VCL083VCL068VBA326VBA328VBA327VBA330VBA336VBA332VBA337VBA333VBA334VBA325VBA335VBA329VBA331VIllustration 1.6.1a Cargo Valve Remote Control SystemCargo Control RoomBosun's StoreHydraulic Power Unit RoomPump RoomSenderPanelPowerUnitPP No.3 LocalHydraulicControlUnitRSOP No.2 LocalHydraulicControlUnitRSOP No.4 LocalHydraulicControlUnitRSOP No.1 LocalHydraulicControlUnitHV001VRPRSORR PRPRPSSOSSO SOSSOOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOO SS OOOStarterBoxNo.2 SolenoidValve BoardNo.1SolenoidValve BoardNo.3 SolenoidValve BoardLocal HydraulicControl UnitB.T.F.V x1 Set(Open-Shut)For Sea ChestValveCL057VSOSOSOB.T.F.V x1 Set(Open-Shut)For Sea ChestValveB.T.F.V x21 Sets(Opening)For Cargo andBallast LineB.T.F.V x8 Sets(Open-Shut)For Cargo andBallast LineCargo Line Top Linesand Drop Line ValvesCargo Line TopCrossover ValvesStarboard ManifoldCargo Line ValvesPort ManifoldCargo Line ValvesB.T.F.V x17 Sets(Open-Shut)For Cargo andBallast LineB.T.F.V x31 Sets(Opening)For Cargo andBallast LineUpperDeckUpperDeckMain DeckMain DeckB.T.F.V x57 Sets(Open-Shut)For Cargo andBallast LineBA324VB.T.F.V x1 Set(Opening)For Cargo LineCL095VKeyHydraulic OilElectrical Signal1.6/1.6.1 Page 1 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1.6 HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS1.6.1 CARGO AND BALLAST VALVE HYDRAULIC REMOTE CONTROLIntroductionThe main cargo oil valves and ballast valves are operated from the Super Cargo XL automatic loading/unloading system. A mimic panel on the cargo control console in the cargo control centre (CCR) gives indication of the valve positions. Manipulation of the valve icons on the screen displays are used to operate the solenoid valves contained in the solenoid valve cabinets in the hydraulic power unit room on upper deck and in the Bosuns store forward. The solenoid valves direct hydraulic pressure, generated by the hydraulic power pack, to open or close the hydraulic valves. The following are of the intermediate position control type valve: The three main cargo pump discharge valves The tank cleaning pump discharge valve Cargo tank main suction valves Cargo tank stripping suction valves Ballast tank suction valves, main and stripping (not including the fore peak tank) Ballast pump discharge valves The degree of opening of each proportional valve is indicated on the mimic screens by a bar graph located next to the valve and on the individual valve faceplate when it is open on the screen by an analogue % read out. A flow meter is installed on each solenoid operated control valve block. Other remote operating valves are of the fully open and closed type. When this type of valve is operated into the open position its colour will change from white (closed position) to colour of the line system valve.The ODME discharge line valve into the port slop tank and overboard can be operated manually via the on screen mimic display valve faceplate when the ODME is in standby mode. When the ODME system is in monitoring mode, these valves are under the direct control of the ODME system and cannot be opened manually.Valve actuators are of the hydraulic cylindrical double acting type and are mounted directly on the valve.No.1 cabinet supplies (located in the Bosuns store): Cargo tank valves CL045V, CL040V, CL002V, CL001V, CL030V, CL029V, CL028V, CL009V, CL008V, CL007V, CL046V, CL041V, CL259V, CL006V, CL005V, CL004V, CL003V, CL027V, CL012V, CL011V, CL010V, CL047V, CL032V, CL031V, CL042V, CL013V, CL026V, CL015V, CL014V, CL033V, CL034V.

LtdPower pack capacity: 420 litresNormal working pressure: 80 to 90kg/cm2Maximum pressure: 100kg/cm2N2 Accumulator capacity (each): 40 litresThe high pressure hydraulic power pack is situated in the hydraulic power unit room on upper deck. It consists of two sets of electrically driven hydraulic pumps, one in use and the other on standby and two accumulators. The accumulators act as a buffer which avoids shock hammer in the system when the pump stops, and also act as a limited reserve of hydraulic power allowing the closing of three of the largest valves in the event that the pumps fail. In normal operation the pumps work in automatic loading and unloading condition, with the duty pump running constantly unloading and loading according to the demand on the system. Primary starting and stopping of the hydraulic pumps is done from the Super Cargo XL screens in the cargo control room. The power pack local control panel has start and stop buttons, high pressure and low oil tank level alarm indication and an alarm buzzer stop, run hour meters and amp meters for each pump. The panel is also used to isolate or supply power to the power pack system. In normal operations the power pack pumps are selected for operation on the Super Cargo XL mimic screen display where the selected pump is under control of a pressure switch, which loads the pump at 77kg/cm2 and unloads the pump at 88kg/cm2. When selected for operation the first pump set into start mode operation becomes the duty pump with the other pump as the standby unit. 1.6/1.6.1 Page 2 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft 1.6/1.6.1 Page 3 of 4Cargo and Ballast Valve Hydraulic Power PackPower PackControl PanelSolenoidControl RackUnloading UnitRelief ValveAccumulatorsCargo and Ballast Valve Hydraulic Emergency Hand PumpDirection Control LeverN.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIn the event of a high demand or the lead pump has failed, the standby pump will cut in and load up at 75kg/cm2.

Segregated ballast is carried in the engine room side tanks, fore and aft peak tanks and in five pairs of wing tanks arranged the entire length of the cargo tank area. The vessel is designed with sufficient heavy weather ballast capacity to meet any weather condition without having to load additional ballast in the cargo tanks.If, however, it is considered that heavy weather ballast may be required during the ballast voyage this will normally be carried in No.3 centre cargo oil tank and this tank shall be crude oil washed before departure from port.The intended sailing ballast condition is with the fore peak full, No.1 to 4 wing ballast tanks full and No.5 wing ballast tanks with approximately 5,000m3 in each. The departure draught for the ballast voyage is calculated to be a mean draught of 10.5m with a trim of 1.2m by the stern. The quantity of ballast in No.5 wing ballast tank is intended to be increased during the ballast voyage to compensate for the consumption of fuel on passage.The ballast tanks on this vessel consist of:: m3 at 100%Fore peak water ballast tank 3,976m3No.1 water ballast tank port 9,002m3No.1 water ballast tank starboard 9,002m3No.2 water ballast tank port 9,608m3No.2 water ballast tank starboard 9,608m3No.3 water ballast tank port 9,736m3No.3 water ballast tank starboard 9,736m3No.4 water ballast tank port 9,478m3No.4 water ballast tank starboard 9,478m3No.5 water ballast tank port 8,758m3No.5 water ballast tank starboard 8,758m3Engine room side tank port 2,144m3Engine room side tank starboard 2,144m3Aft peak tank 2,111m3The total capacity of the segregated ballast tanks 103,539m3 103,539mt at SG 1.025 31.69 % of the Summer DWTThe main ballast tanks are served by two centrifugal pumps, both are steam turbine driven, each with a capacity of 4,000m3/h at 40mth. The pumps are located in the pump room and provided with their own sea chest. The pumps are connected to an overboard discharge line which ends approximately 0.5m above the deepest water ballast line on the starboard side. The COT ballast overboard passes via a 650mm pipe through No.5 starboard water ballast tank and exits at least 0.5m above the deepest water ballast line. The ODME equipment is connected to the this overboard. When necessary the ODME will divert the flow into the port slop tank.The ballast pumps can be connected to the cargo tank system via manually operated valve BA340V, a portable spool piece, manually operated valve CL134V and check valve CL323V. Under normal circumstances this connection should not be used to ballast No.3 cargo tank for heavy weather conditions.Heavy weather ballast will be deliverd to No.3 centre COT via a main cargo pump after a basic line wash.The ballast main system is split into two separate lines, No.1 ballast pump serves the starboard tanks and the fore peak tank, while No.2 pump serves the port ballast tanks. The ballast pump suction and discharge lines can be interconnected via crossover valves to allow for flexibility of operation, additionally there are two crossover valves in No.1 port ballast tank. The aft peak tank and engine room side tanks are filled/emptied via the bilge, fire and GS pumps in the engine room.An automatic unloading system is fitted to allow automatic draining of the ballast tanks using the main ballast pumps. Each main ballast tank apart from the fore peak tank, has a main 450mm suction line and a 200mm stripping line.In addition, two stripping eductors are provided to facilitate adequate draining of the ballast tanks if the automatic unloading system is not used.All the valves on the main ballast system are hydraulically operated from the Super Cargo XL mimic screen display BALLAST TANKS (1/1) in the cargo control room, apart from the crossover valves BA360V and BA359V, which are manually operated plus the fore peak isolating valve BA312V and the overboard discharge valve BA323V which are operated from hydraulic deck stands on the upper deck. The suction valves, main and stripping on the ballast tanks and pump discharge valves are of the proportional type, i.e. they can be opened between 0 and 100%.In the event that there is leakage of cargo oil/vapour into the ballast tanks, inert gas can be directed into the ballast tanks via the ballast suction lines. A portable spool piece, manually operated valve BA341V and a check valve BA359V facilitate this operation. 1.7/1.7.1 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftC35C109C109Level GaugeSealingFreshWaterSealFreshWaterValve ControlSignalDischarge toBallast MainC2C16C6C17C30C30VU011VSuction fromNo.2 Ballast PumpSeparatorC202.5mEngine RoomSea Water VapourValve Normally ClosedBallast WaterFresh WaterKeyNo.1SeparatorTest/AdjustmentNo.1BallastPumpA20B1LPA1A3BA342VBA343VBA338VBA339VBA041BA040BA330VBA331VVU004VVU005VA17A11A12A10A13A9A8Illustration 1.7.2a Automatic Ballast Stripping SystemPump RoomDrainBallastSuctionSeaSuctionNo.5MotorPIPIBA332VBA333VNo. 2C2No.6MotorNo.6VacuumPumpNo.5VacuumPumpC16AHUpper Deck Outside ofPump Room Starboard SideNo. 11.7/1.7.2 Page 1 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1.7.2 AUTOMATIC BALLASTING STRIPPING OPERATIONManufacturer: Shinko Industries LtdModel: AUS 454-2IntroductionThe automatic ballast stripping system is provided to improve the efficiency of stripping the ballast tanks. It utilises the ballast pumps to complete the stripping operation which reduces deballasting time. The operation is fully automated.The basic principle of the system is to automatically prevent the suction of sea water vapour or air into the pump, thus enabling the ballast pump to be used to completely discharge all the ballast. The air drawn in from the bellmouth tank suction and the sea water vapour produced in the suction line are separated from the ballast in the separator, on the suction side of the ballast pump. The gases gather at the top of the separator from where they are extracted by the vacuum pump system.When a large volume of gas enters the separator during the stripping stage, the liquid level in the separator drops. This would normally cause the pump to lose suction and stop pumping. To prevent this condition, the opening of the discharge valve of the ballast pump is controlled in proportion to the liquid level of the separator and adjusts the flow rate accordingly. The lower the liquid level falls, the more the discharge valve closes. If the liquid level falls below the minimum set value, the discharge valve closes fully. Component Description Separator (A1)Manufacturer: Shinko Industries Ltd.No. of sets: 2 (one per pump)Volume: 4.08m3The separator (A1) is a tank on the suction side of the cargo oil pump. It contains an integrated lattice screen (A20) which assists in the separation of the gas from the liquid and protects the pump from damage by ingress of debris. The gas collects at the top where it is extracted by the vacuum pumps. A level transmitter (A3) is mounted on the side of the separator. The transmitter converts the liquid level to a pneumatic signal which controls the discharge valve (B1), vacuum pumps and gas extraction valve (C30).Discharge Control Valve (B1)No. of sets: 2 (one per pump)Type: Pneumatically operated, non-tight butterfly valveThe discharge control valve (B1) is a butterfly type valve driven by a pneumatic cylinder and controls the pump capacity as directed by the Super Cargo XL system. The valve is controlled remotely either by the automatic control signal from the level transmitter (A3) on the separator, or by the manual control signal from the manual loader on the Super Cargo XL control system in the cargo control room. The selector icon is used to select automatic or manual control of the discharge valve. Three-way cocks are situated locally to enable the discharge valve to be opened in an emergency. Vacuum Pump Unit (C1) and Vacuum Pumps (C2)Manufacturer: Shinko Industries Ltd.No. of vacuum pumps: 2Model: NSW 100Capacity: 630m3/hMaximum vacuum: 550mm HgThe vacuum pumps are horizontal water ring type, driven by an electric motor through an intermediate shaft which passes through the bulkhead from the engine room. The pumps extract the gas from the top of the separators (A1) and discharge it to atmosphere. The pumps are automatically started and stopped by a pressure switch which is operated by the pneumatic signal from the level transmitter (A3). The pumps can also be started and stopped by means of the control switch on the control panel in the cargo control room.Each pump is equipped with a screw-down non-return suction valve (C16) to prevent sealing water and gases from flowing back to the gas extraction line. The sealing water tank (C6) separates the gas from the sealing water and acts as a reservoir for the supply of sealing water to the vacuum pumps.Gas Extraction Valve (C30)No. of sets: 2The gas extraction valve (C30) is a pneumatically operated piston type valve. This is installed in the gas extraction line leading from the top of the separator (A1), and is opened and closed by a solenoid valve controlled through a pressure switch, which is operated from the level transmitter (A3).This valve opens when the separator level is less than 50% and closes when it returns to 70% or more.Any liquid (fresh water or ballast water) which overflows from the sealing tank or is drained down from the vacuum pump suction line overflows into the pump room bilge. Operating ProcedureSetting Up the System for Automatic Strippinga) Ensure that there is sufficient water in the vacuum unit sealing tank. The level can be topped up by opening the filling valve from the domestic supply.b) Ensure that the control air supply is available and the air supply unit is drained of any condensate.c) Check that the exhaust suction isolating valves are open on the vacuum pumps d) Through the Super Cargo XL control display set the automatic stripping system as follows: Set the AUS CONTROL to START. Set the DISCH VALVE to MANU. Set GEV to MANU CLOSE. It is very important that this valve is closed as the separator is being filled, due to the possible head of water that will come flooding into the ballast line from the ballast tanks. Set AUTO FINISH to OFF. Set the AFTER STRIPPING to AUTO STOP or KEEP RUN. Select the vacuum pumps No.5 and 6 to MANUAL operation. It is very important at this stage when the separator and ballast lines are being so this is in order that sea water cannot be carried over from the separator into the vacuum pumps due to the head of water. Select the run order for the vacuum pumps, either No.5 lead and No.6 lag, or vice versa. Reset the VP and GEV interlocks.e) Open the sea suction valves slightly to slowly prime the separators to the normal working 70% level and pump casings. Open each pump discharge valve slightly to vent off any air from the casing.f) Prime the ballast line up to the ballast tank suctions valves.1.7/1.7.2 Page 2 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftMONITORING1MONITORING2OPERATIONOPERATION7/Jan/2003 10:51REPOSEAFTDRAFT(m)FOREPORTSTBDTRIM(m)HomeMenu WindowExecute Hold Reject HoldListAssociatedScreenAck.BuzzerStopPageUpPageDownHEEL(deg.)7/Jan/2003 10:517/Jan/2003 10:517/Jan/2003 10:51Under P/M top (S) Gas alarm system flow failure alarmBeside of No.3 COP Gas alarm system flow failure alarmAbove 27,000 platform Gas alarm system flow failure alarmSYSTEMUTILITYNO.5 AUSNO.5 AUSAUS CONTROLAUS CONTROLStartStart StopStopDISCH.

When the system has become stable set the VP and GEV icons on the Super Cargo XL display to AUTO.i) Set the vacuum pump No.5 VP and No.6 VP to AUT. This allows the vacuum pump to be available as required.While the liquid level in the ballast tanks is sufficient to ensure that the separator level remains above 70%, the automatic unloading system is not required.As the ballast tank level falls, the suction pressure also falls and approaches the vapour pressure of the liquid being pumped. Part of the liquid will turn to vapour and accumulate at the top of the separator (A1) and, as a result, the separator level begins to fall.When the separator level falls below 50%, a pressure switch is actuated by the pneumatic signal from the level transmitter (A3) and the vacuum pump (C2) starts. At the same time the gas extraction valve (C30) opens and the discharge valve (B1) is throttled in by a corresponding amount.The vacuum pump extracts the gases and the separator level rises. When the separator level recovers above 70%, the gas extraction valve (C30) closes, and 20 seconds later, the vacuum pump stops. The discharge valve (B1) then opens. As the tank level falls further towards the bottom of the tank, turbulence occurs around the suction pipe and gas begins to be drawn into the bellmouth of the tank suction. This gas is separated in the same manner as previously described.When the tank level falls further, the liquid surface around the bellmouth becomes violently disturbed and a large volume of gas can be sucked from the bottom of the bellmouth. Under these conditions the level of liquid in the separator falls to a level where the signal air pressure, from the level transmitter, causes the discharge valve to close and decrease the flow. The speed of liquid flowing into the bellmouth decreases and the disturbance around the bellmouth also decreases, thus the amount of gas being drawn into the bellmouth decreases.When the volume of gas being drawn in to the bellmouth becomes less than the extraction capacity of the vacuum pump, the separator level begins to rise and at the same time the discharge valve begins to open gradually and the pump discharge flow begins to increase. In order to achieve the best deballasting conditions when the ballast tank level has become low, reduce the pump speed in order to maintain the discharge valve open position at above 40%.This cycle will repeat until the discharge valve is opening only slightly while the amount of gas drawn in is increasing. When the separator level falls to below 5%, the SEPARATOR LEVEL LOW, on the control DISPLAY lights up, showing that unloading has reached the stripping stage.As the stripping of the ballast tank advances, even though the vacuum pump is running continuously, the level in the separator does not rise. As a result the discharge valve remains closed most of the time. Under these conditions it is advisable to reduce the speed of the ballast pump to avoid overheating of the pump casing and possible failure of the pump seals.When the SEPARATOR LEVEL LOW lamp has remained on for three minutes the STRIPPING FINISH flashes and the buzzer sounds, signifying completion of discharge.If the AFTER STRIPPING icon has been set to AUTO STOP then the ballast pump will stop automatically at this stage. However, if the icon has been set to KEEP RUN, then the ballast pump will continue to run. If the residual liquid appears to warrant more stripping it is possible to control the pump and the discharge valve manually, in which case set the AUTO FINISH ON/OFF selector to OFF to release the trip condition of the vacuum pump and the gas extraction valve. This operation will allow the vacuum pump and gas extraction valve to return to automatic control if conditions warrant it. When it can be judged that there is no advantage in operating the pump continuously, the pump can be stopped manually.To transfer over to deballasting another tank, reduce the pump speed to minimum and set the AUTO STRIPPING icon to AUTO STOP or KEEP RUN.Set the pump discharge valve setting to 0% and MANUAL control. If necessary, due to the head of water in the next tank, it is advisable to prime the separator and pump as previously described ie., the vacuum pumps set to OFF and the GEV valves closed to stop priming the separator up to the vacuum pumps and in order to protect the system from water hammer.CAUTIONRunning the pump in the manual condition may result in the pump running dry, or running with the discharge valve closed longer than the manufacturers recommendation, resulting in serious damage to the pump and mechanical seals.When the last ballast tank has been stripped with the system set to AUTO STOP, the pump will shut down automatically. Set the AUS CONTROL to STOP on the Super Cargo XL display.1.7/1.7.2 Page 4 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 1.7.3a Ballast Tank VentingNo.2 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.5 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.5 Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.4 Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2 Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1 Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Port)Slop Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)VoidSlop Tank(Starboard)KeyPurge Pipe Locations Cargo Oil TanksPV ValvePurge Pipe in Ballast TanksBallast Tank Vents2m2m10mm HoleInert Gas MainFlexible HosePurge PipePurge PipeCargo Oil TankPurge Pipe In Ballast TanksPurge Pipe In Cargo Oil TanksCargo Oil TankBallast TankBallast Tank Ballast TankWing COTWing COT Centre COTAir Vent Air Vent1.7/1.7.3 Page 1 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1.7.3 VENTINGPrior to arrival, each segregated ballast hatch must be opened for inspection and then closed before cargo operations commence. The reason for this is to ensure the ballast is clean.During ballasting operations the sighting port covers can be lifted for visual inspection of the ballast. Each sighting port is fitted with a flame screen. Winnel type vents are fitted to all ballast tanks, which avoids the dangers of either overpressurisation or the creation of a vacuum during filling and emptying. Reference should be made to the Ballast Water Management plan in respect to the dangers of overpressurisation of ballast tanks and for the requirement of when ballast water must be exchanged according to local authorities policies.Where it is necessary to carry additional heavy weather ballast in the COTs and this is loaded during port operations, the gas should be vented through the Vapour Control Emission system, either to shore facilities, if available, or to atmosphere.1.7/1.7.3 Page 2 of 2Ballast Tank Ventilation UnitsN.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYPART 2: CARGO HANDLING PROCEDURES2.1 Cargo Handling Operation Sequence Diagrams 2.1.1 Loading 2.1.2 DischargingIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftWork out a loading plan using all top/bottom lines and the threegroups of tanks to the best advantage, bearing in mind anyrequired segregation and the maintenance of a suitable trim,draught and stress throughout.2.3Check that the cargo valve hydraulic system is in operationand that all cargo valves are in the shut position.

However, after refit or tank inspections some, or all, of the tanks may be gas free. Prior to any cargo operations all COTs must be inerted and this is normally completed en route to the loadport. Good quality IG must be supplied to the COTs to be inerted and each COT vented through its own tank purge pipe to atmosphere.Inert gas is slightly heavier than air, so the piston dilution method is recommended. This is achieved by introducing a steady flow of IG into the top of each COT via the inert gas main inlet lines at positive pressure and displacing air from each COT purge pipe. It is normal to purge several tanks at the same time. The maximum number of tanks should be open whilst still maintaining a slight flow out of the tank hatches to atmosphere, as this will assist in better layering of the IG in the tanks. The quality of the vented tank atmosphere is monitored at regular intervals. When the oxygen content is below 8% O2 the COT is considered to be inerted. However, it is advisable to reduce the oxygen level to below 5% O2 if time allows, so increasing the margins of safety.Assuming all COTs are gas free.a) Ensure the IG spectacle blanks to all tanks have been swung to the open position and that the IG isolating valve to each COT being inerted is open, No.4, 5 and 6 wings (slop tanks).Position Description ValveOpen No.4 wings IG inlet valves ND021, ND019Open No.5 wings IG inlet valves ND024, ND022Open Slop tanks, port and starboard IG inlet valves ND026, ND025b) Open the purge pipe hatches on all tanks, ensuring the flame screen is clean and in good condition.c) Close the vent riser bypass valve.Position Description ValveClose IG deck vent riser bypass ND004d) Open the IG plant discharge and deck main isolating valves.Position Description ValveOpen IG deck manual isolating valve ND002Open IG plant manual discharge isolating valve ND001e) Confirm that the IG plant is running and the O2 content is less than 5%.

This involves connecting a vapour return arm to the IG main at the manifold so that the entire displaced COT atmosphere is processed ashore rather than being vented direct to atmosphere. The vessel is fitted with two 600mm manifold valves, port and starboard amidships, which are connected into the deck IG main line.Most load ports, at present, allow venting to atmosphere. Where venting is permitted during loading, excess vapour is vented to atmosphere through the vent mast riser. The ships maximum loading rate is contracted as 8,000m3/h, with a maximum loading rate to each centre tank of 3,180m3/h and 2,862m3/h for the wing tanks.The ships maximum vapour transfer rate is ???m3/h, with the vapour transfer rate from each centre tank of ???m3/h and ???m3/h for each wing tank.Loading at a Shore Terminal with VECPrior to any cargo operations the following vapour recovery parameters must be established at the pre-transfer conference: Present vapour pressure in the cargo tanks The initial loading rate and maximum loading flow rate of all concurrent cargo The maximum vapour transfer the shore facility can handle, including both system and berth limitations Types of vapours which will be discharged from the present as well as previous cargoes The maximum pressure drop from the cargo tanks to the vessels vapour manifold connection during the maximum cargo loading flow rate The operating pressure to be maintained in the cargo tanks The maximum and minimum vapour operating pressures The facilitys alarm and trip set points for high and low pressures Verify that tank oxygen levels have been checked and are below 8% Verify that all level alarms have been tested within the last 24 hours Verify that all vapour recovery valves are in the correct positionProcedureAll valves are initially shut.a) Verify that the two IG deck master valves, ND001 and ND002, are shut.b) Make sure the IG deck main is common with all individual COT IG spectacle pieces turned to the open position and the individual COT IG valves open.c) Ensure that the yellow vapour connection piece is in place. Check that the shore hose has a current certification of a pressure test and that it is free of any defects.d) Connect the vapour hose, using a new joint if necessary, ensuring that the hose is correctly supported.e) Open the drain valves on the vapour header to ensure that all condensate is drained off and when completed shut these valves.f) Open the amidships manifold valve to which the vapour recovery arm is connected.g) Should the tank pressure drop to 0.01kg/cm2, the low pressure alarm will sound and it will be necessary to shut in the VEC manifold until loading is commenced or the flow rate is increased.Cargo transfer operations are then carried out so that all vapour emissions are contained within a closed system. Tank pressures, flow rates and oxygen levels are to be constantly monitored.At a Shore Terminal without VECThere will be occasions where, due to lack of shore side vapour control systems, it will be necessary to carry out cargo transfers without their use.In this situation it will be necessary to make use of the vessels vent mast riser to control the tank pressure during loading.As with the enclosed system the pre-transfer conference will require the same information with the exception of those items relating to the shore facility.The vent mast riser breather rate is set at 0.154kg/cm2 for pressure and, during loading the bypass valve ND004 should be set in the open position to ensure maximum flow through. The vent mast riser is designed to release the vapour at a rate that will propel the released vapour away from the vessels decks and clear of any danger areas. During the use of the vent mast riser, care must be taken to ensure that changes in the climatic conditions, i.e. lightning or very calm conditions, do not interfere with the safety of the operations.All valves are initially shut.a) Verify that the IG deck master valves, ND001 and ND002, are shut.b) Make sure the IG deck main is common with all individual COT IG spectacle pieces turned to the open position and individual tank IG valves open.c) Open the vent mast riser valve ND004.d) Start loading. e) Monitor the IG main pressure regularly.2.2/2.2.2 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftNG041VNG029VND027ND009ND002ND025 ND022ND023 ND014 ND011ND005ND029 ND030ND031 ND032Spill Tank (Starboard)Spill Tank (Port)ND006ND007 ND008ND020ND004ND026 ND024BA341Minimum2500mmLowerGrating inPump RoomNo.5 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.5 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Centre)VentRiserNo.5 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Port)Slop Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)VoidSlop Tank(Starboard)No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)Upper DeckToTransmitterPanelPump RoomWater Ballast Main LineDeck SealWaterSupplySteamSupplySteamReturnShoreConnectionPortShoreConnectionStb'dEngine RoomBulkheadND001 ND003ND043ND042To Cargo Oil Main LineKeyInert GasSea WaterSteamCondensatePurge Pipe LocationsND019ND021ND018ND013ND015ND010ND012PVBreakerND016NG017VNG018VP PND017Illustration 2.2.4a Inerting Cargo Tanks During DischargeDeckSeal2.2/2.2.3/4 Page 1 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.2.3 LOADING During the loading operation the main IG plant is shut down and the tank pressure is controlled via the vent mast riser or the VEC manifold.

Prior to starting discharge it is necessary to start the IG plant with the system recirculating until the oxygen level is below 5%, see section 1.4 for inert gas operation.When the quality of inert gas is satisfactory, regulate the supply of IG to the tanks by adjustment of the pressure controller i.e. automatic control of the deck supply valve and the capacity control valves.Start the cargo pumps and observe the pressure of the inert gas as the discharge rate increases.The capacity of the flue gas system is 20,630m3/h at 400mmWG. This ensures that during the period of minimum ullage space, the cargo pumps can be utilised without the danger of creating a vacuum. The pressure of the inert gas delivered to the deck can be adjusted to match the cargo discharge rate by use of the deck pressure controller in the cargo control centre on the main inert gas panel.All valves are initially shut.Position Description ValveOpen Deck isolating valves ND001, ND002Ensure all cargo oil tank IG valves are open.a) When the IG plant is running satisfactorily and within operational parameters for the delivery of IG, press the SELECT CON button on the sub-control panel in the cargo control room panel.b) Adjust the set point of the pressure controller as required.2.2/2.2.3/4 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY2.3 Loading Cargo 2.3.1 Loading a Single Grade Cargo 2.3.2 Loading a Two and Three Grade CargoIllustrations 2.3.1a Loading Cargo - Single Grade 2.3.2a Loading Cargo - Two Grades 2.3.2b Loading Cargo - Three GradesIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPTHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPTPTHHHHHSeaChestHHHKeyCargo Single GradeTank CleaningHeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HH HH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHHHHHHH H H HH H H HHHCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL198VCL106VCL107VCL108VCL195VIllustration 2.3.1a Loading Cargo - Single GradeCL057VSteam and AirCondensateNo.1No.2No.3Cargo Oil Pumps(5,500m3/h x150mth)Tank Cleaning Pump (3,000m3/h x150mth)Cargo Oil Stripping Pump (450m3/h x150mth)8k Air8k AirFromWater BallastSystemSampling PointPipe TrunkCL068VCL184VCL177VCL163VCL183VCL178VCL164VCL182VCL179VCL165VCL181VCL140VCL133VCL138VCL131VCL139VCL132VCL123VCL251VCL122VCL134VTo Tank Cleaning MainCL096VBilgeSuction(Aft)BilgeSuction(Fwd)BilgeSuction(VoidSpace)Cargo Oil Stripping LineNo.1 Cargo Main LineNo.2 Cargo Main LineNo.3 Cargo Main LineCL097VCL270VCL256VFromVacuumSystemFromFire LineFromInert GasMainCL180VCL166VCL059VCL065VCL064VCL069VCL063VCL062VCL060VCL061VCL087VCL120VCL095VCL071VCL076VCL077VCL074VCL075VCL072VCL073VCL119VCL086VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL091VCL090VCL093VCL092VCL124VCL054VCL252VCL055VCL272VCL277VCL050VCL053VCL253VCL109VCL110VCL111V CL116V CL117VCL147VCL101VCL148VCL112V CL113VCL114V CL115VCL121VCL051VCL071VCL052VCL056VCL125VCL126VCL127VCL130V CL082VCL254VCL136VCL137VCL161VCL168VCL078VCL084VCL058VCL269VCL128VCL129VCL267VCL201VCL200VNo.1No.2Cargo OilStrippingEductors(700m3/h)Pump Room BilgeStripping Eductors(10m3/h)CL083VCL080VCL079VCL081VCL094VCL135VCL255VCL206VCL213VCL225VCL160VCL159VCL158VCL212VCL226VCL211VCL227VCL210VCL228VCL145VCL100VCL146VCL207VCL143VCL099VCL144VCL208VCL141VCL098VCL142VCL209VCL149VCL009VCL030VCL007VCL001VCL011VCL017VCL020VCL191VCL262VCL002VCL028VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL042VCL041VCL043VCL044VCL045VCL040VCL027VCL046VCL026VCL014VCL047VCL025VCL048VCL024VCL049VCL039VCL008VCL029VCL010VCL031VCL012VCL032VCL015VCL034VCL018VCL036VCL021VCL038VCL261V CL260V CL259VCL013VCL033VCL016VCL035VCL019VCL037VCL022VCL263VCL023VCL102VCL150VCL205VCL214VCL224VCL157VCL215VCL223VCL216VCL222VCL217VCL221VCL151VCL103VCL152VCL204VCL153VCL104VCL154VCL203VCL155VCL105VCL156VCL202VCL268VCL197VCL194VNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.4CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Stb'd)Slop Tank(Port)Slop Tank(Stb'd)No.5 StarboardWater BallastTankNo.4 COTPort WingNo.4 COTStarboard WingNo.3 COTPort WingCL199VCL264VHCL286VCL070V2.3/2.3.1 Page 1 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.3 LOADING CARGOPrior to arrival at the loading port, a number of communications take place between the loading terminal and the vessel. These are based on the ISGOTT guide checklists.Particular attention should be given to: Emergency shutdown procedures Closed loading techniques Topping off techniques Oil spill response procedures The manifold area and the mooring systemsWARNINGThe greatest free surface effect is when the ballast tanks are at a sounding of 3m or less, when the water level has cleared the trunkway in the side tanks and is solely in the double bottom area. If, at the same time, the cargo level is low, the combined effect of a relatively small displacement and the free surface effect in the cargo ballast tanks could result in a negative GM. This may lead to the vessel developing an angle of loll.2.3.1 LOADING A SINGLE GRADE CARGOPrior to arrival at the load port a number of checks and tests must be carried out, to verify the correct operation of the cargo hydraulic and monitoring systems. Each vapour recovery/inert gas line is fitted with a breather combined pressure vacuum valve. The test levers on all PV valves must be operated to confirm that the valves are free to operate on their seats before loading or unloading. After planning the stability, taking into consideration the maximum permissible draught, bunkers, water and extras, the loading of a single grade homogeneous cargo is relatively straightforward.(Note: All loading operations are carried out via the Super Cargo XL cargo screen display mimics, with all remote hydraulic valves other than those operated from their local control boxes being operated with the mouse and cursor at the cargo console in the CCR. Indications of all cargo valves and their status are displayed on the mimic panel on the console and on the Super Cargo XL mimic screens.)a) Make the IG system common, with the IG valves to all tanks open and their spectacle pieces turned to the open position.b) Check that the IG deck isolating valves ND001 and ND002 are closed. When preparing the system to load cargo, it is important to ensure that all valves are in the closed position prior to commencing the setting of the cargo lines. c) Ensure that all overboard valves are in the closed position and sealed, and that the spectacle pieces are swung and secured in the closed position.d) Ensure that all unused manifold valves are blanked and shut.e) Open vent mast riser valve ND004 if VEC is not to be used. If VEC is to be used, see section 2.2.3.f) Open the deck drop loading valves, the cargo group isolation valves and the required tank suction valves.g) Open the manifold valves to which the loading arms are connected.h) Start loading cargo at a slow rate into one tank. When cargo is confirmed as coming into the selected tank, other tank valves may be opened, as required, and the loading rate increased. i) Create an appropriate stagger for controlled topping off and reduce the loading rate in ample time.j) Ensure the ballast operations are completed in advance of the final topping off.The trimming tanks are the slack COTs resulting from trim, draught or nominated cargo restrictions. These are normally COTs No.1 and No.5 centre.Wing tanks are not recommended for use as trimming or finishing tanks.Trimming tanks are filled to pre-planned ullages and then shut. They are brought to their final ullage towards the end of loading, at a reduced loading rate. It is always advisable to complete loading in a slack tank in order to reduce the risk of a carry-over of cargo to the IG main. Slack tanks should be kept to a minimum in order to reduce the free surface effect.Deballasting is to be started shortly after bulk loading is under way.The maximum loading rate into any one centre cargo tank must not exceed 3,180m3/h and 2,862m3/h for the wing cargo tanks. Initially all valves shut.The manifold, manifold crossover, main line block and drop valves are operated from hydraulic control boxes situated near to the manifolds. Their positions are relayed back to the screen displays and console mimic panel. All other hydraulic valves are operated from the Super Cargo XL screen mimics.Position Description ValveClose Deck main IG isolating valves ND001, ND002Open Manifold valve that the VEC recovery arm is connected to ND005, ND006 ND007 or ND008 Or Mast riser if no VEC ND004Open No.1, 2 and 3 group loading valves CL106, CL107 CL108Open No.1 and 2 group isolation valves CL001, CL002Open No.1 and 3 group isolation valves CL003, CL004Open No.2 and 3 group isolation valves CL005, CL006Open No.1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 wing COT and both slop tanks CL007, CL009 CL010, CL012 CL013, CL015 CL016, CL018 CL019, CL021 CL022, CL262 CL023, CL263Open The manifold valves that loading arms are connected to (port side) CL098, CL099 CL100, CL101 (starboard side) CL102, CL103 CL104, CL105k) Commence loading at the agreed slow rate until the initial safety and integrity checks are completed, then increase to the required full loading rate.l) Stagger the tanks and reduce the loading rate in preparation for topping off tanks.2.3/2.3.1 Page 2 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPTHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPTPTHHHHHSeaChestHHHKeyCargo Single GradeTank CleaningHeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HH HH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHHHHHHH H H HH H H HHHCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL198VCL106VCL107VCL108VCL195VIllustration 2.3.1a Loading Cargo -

Each vapour recovery/inert gas line is fitted with a breather combined pressure vacuum valve. The test levers on all PV valves must be operated to confirm that the valves are free to operate on their seats before loading or unloading.After planning the stability, taking into consideration maximum permissible draught, bunkers, water and extras, the procedure to load a multigrade crude oil cargo is very similar to that for a single grade, the worst case scenario being that three grades are to be loaded and discharged whilst maintaining a two valve separation. The following assumes that the vapours from each grade are compatible with the other grades being loaded. If this is not the case, only grades with compatible vapours can be loaded concurrently.a) Make the IG system common with all spectacle blanks, cargo tank isolating valves and the vent mast riser open.When preparing the system to load cargo, it is important to ensure that all valves are in the closed position prior to setting the cargo lines. b) Set the cargo lines ensuring that the required valve segregation is observed. Double check the line settings prior to commencing cargo operations.c) Ensure that all overboard valves are closed and sealed.d) Ensure that all unused manifold valves are shut and blanked. e) Open the required tank suction valves in each of the three groups.f) Open the manifold valves to which the loading arms are connected. g) Commence loading, one grade at a time at the agreed reduced rate. Once satisfied that the cargo is flowing only into the selected tanks, loading of the second and third grades can be commenced in the same manner.h) Create an appropriate stagger for controlled topping off, reduce the loading rates in ample time.i) Ensure the ballast operation is completed in advance of the final topping off.j) On completion of loading, drain all the loading lines into slack tanks and close all valves on the cargo system.The trimming tanks are the slack COTs resulting from trim, draught or nominated cargo restrictions. These are usually COTs No.1 and No.5, or body tanks such as COTs No.3. Wing tanks are not recommended for use as trimming or finishing tanks.Trimming tanks are filled to a pre-planned ullage and then shut. They are brought to their final ullage towards the end of loading at a reduced loading rate. It is always advisable to complete loading in a slack tank in order to reduce the risk of a carry-over of cargo to the inert gas main. Slack tanks should be kept to a minimum in order to reduce the free surface effect. Deballasting is to be started shortly after bulk loading is under way. Segregated ballast should be discharged as required to assist in maintaining a reasonable trim.(Note: All loading operations are carried out via the Super Cargo XL cargo screen display mimics, with all remote hydraulic valves other than those operated from their local control boxes being operated with the mouse and cursor at the cargo console in the CCR. Indications of all cargo valves and their status are displayed on the mimic panel on the console and on the Super Cargo XL mimic screens.)Loading a Two Grade CargoAssuming two valve separation is required to be maintained between the grades it is necessary to load using a combination of the loading groups. This could be either group one and two for the 1st grade and group three for the 2nd. Any combination of the groups can be used subject to the quantities required and the stress/stability requirements. Assuming two grades being loaded.

If it is intended that the slop tanks are to be used for crude oil washing, they should be discharged and refilled with fresh dry crude oil.j) Increase to full speed discharge as per discharge plan and in agreement with the shore installation.(Note: During draining it may be necessary to reduce the speed of the other main cargo pumps, so reducing the back pressure and improving draining performance.)k) The ballast crossover to the bottom cargo line is normally kept closed and blanked. The spool piece between the cargo oil and ballast systems must be removed and the lines blanked. l) The crossovers between the cargo lines in the pump room can be opened to optimise MCP performance, but care must be exercised.m) At approximately 1.5m sounding, the vacuum pump system can be started and the automatic stripping system activated. n) Crude oil washing can be started as required when the selected tanks are empty.o) Upon completion of discharge, the cargo lines must be drained to the shore tanks. This can be achieved in two ways: i) By dropping the lines to the slop tank and re-draining the slop tank to shore via the MARPOL Line. or ii) By draining the lines directly with the stripping pump and pumping the drainings ashore via the MARPOL Line. During draining of the lines, the vacuum in the cargo lines must be broken via vacuum breaker valves CL199, CL264.Segregated ballast loading should be started and maintained according to the discharging plan, consistent with maintaining the trim and stress within acceptable limits.2.4/2.4.1 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPTHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPTPTHHHHHSeaChestHHHKeyCargo Grade - 1TC HeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HH HH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHHHHHHH H H HH H H HHHCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL198VCL106VCL107VCL108VCL195VIllustration 2.4.2a Full Cargo Discharge, One GradeCL057VSteam and AirCondensateNo.1No.2No.3Cargo Oil Pumps(5,500m3/h x150mth)Tank Cleaning Pump (3,000m3/h x150mth)Cargo Oil Stripping Pump (450m3/h x150mth)8k Air8k AirFromWater BallastSystemSampling PointPipe TrunkCL068VCL184VCL177VCL163VCL183VCL178VCL164VCL182VCL179VCL165VCL181VCL140VCL133VCL138VCL131VCL139VCL132VCL123VCL251VCL122VCL134VTo Tank Cleaning MainCL096VBilgeSuction(Aft)BilgeSuction(Fwd)BilgeSuction(VoidSpace)Cargo Oil Stripping LineNo.1 Cargo Main LineNo.2 Cargo Main LineNo.3 Cargo Main LineCL097VCL270VCL256VFromVacuumSystem FromFire LineFromInert GasMainCL180VCL166VCL059VCL065VCL064VCL069VCL063VCL062VCL060VCL061VCL087VCL120VCL095VCL071VCL076VCL077VCL074VCL075VCL072VCL073VCL119VCL086VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL091VCL090VCL093VCL092VCL124VCL054VCL252VCL055VCL272VCL277VCL050VCL053VCL253VCL109VCL110VCL111V CL116V CL117VCL147VCL101VCL148VCL112V CL113VCL114V CL115VCL121VCL051VCL071VCL052VCL056VCL125VCL126VCL127VCL130V CL082VCL254VCL136VCL137VCL161VCL168VCL078VCL084VCL058VCL269VCL128VCL129VCL267VCL201VCL200VNo.1No.2Cargo OilStrippingEductors(700m3/h)Pump Room BilgeStripping Eductors(10m3/h)CL083VCL080VCL079VCL081VCL094VCL135VCL255VCL206VCL213VCL225VCL160VCL159VCL158VCL212VCL226VCL211VCL227VCL210VCL228VCL145VCL100VCL146VCL207VCL143VCL099VCL144VCL208VCL141VCL098VCL142VCL209VCL149VCL009VCL030VCL007VCL001VCL011VCL017VCL020VCL191VCL262VCL002VCL028VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL042VCL041VCL043VCL044VCL045VCL040VCL027VCL046VCL026VCL014VCL047VCL025VCL048VCL024VCL049VCL039VCL008VCL029VCL010VCL031VCL012VCL032VCL015VCL034VCL018VCL036VCL021VCL038VCL261V CL260V CL259VCL013VCL033VCL016VCL035VCL019VCL037VCL022VCL263VCL023VCL102VCL150VCL205VCL214VCL224VCL157VCL215VCL223VCL216VCL222VCL217VCL221VCL151VCL103VCL152VCL204VCL153VCL104VCL154VCL203VCL155VCL105VCL156VCL202VCL268VCL197VCL194VNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.4CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Stb'd)Slop Tank(Port)Slop Tank(Stb'd)No.5 StarboardWater BallastTankNo.4 COTPort WingNo.4 COTStarboard WingNo.3 COTPort WingCL199VCL264VHCL286VCL070V2.4/2.4.2 Page 1 of 6N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.4.2 DISCHARGE OF A SINGLE GRADE CARGO WITH COW OF NO.1 CENTRE COT, NO.4 WINGS COT AND BOTH SLOP TANKSTank washing is done using the single stage method, commencing when the tank is almost dry. During washing, the level in the tank being washed should be kept as low as possible.

between the bottom lines, CL002 and CL001, CL003 and CL004, CL005 and CL006, can be opened as required. Alternatively, or in addition to the crossovers, the ballast suction crossover can be utilised to make all the bottom lines common, CL066, CL067, CL064, CL065, CL062 and CL063.Adjust the discharge so that the slop tanks will be the first tanks to be drained and washed.l) As the first tanks near draining level, the automatic unloading system should be set up as per section 1.3.3.m) Drain the slop tanks ashore using No.3 COP and the automatic unloading system. When both slop tanks are at cleaning level set up system for COW.Procedure to Crude Oil Wash the Slop Tanks(Note: All tank cleaning valves are manual valves and are operated by hand.)(Note: The tank

This will ensure that the stability, stress, draught and trim are all within acceptable levels throughout the discharge, and comply at all times with terminal restrictions.In addition, the following factors are to be considered and included in the cargo plan prior to the discharge: Maximum available draught at berth Maximum available air draught at berth Grade segregation if necessary Crude oil washing requirements Heavy weather ballast requirements Maintenance of satisfactory trim Ballasting operation(Note: To maximise the discharge rate and carry out a full COW it is preferable to discharge the slop tanks first to allow the COW to be carried out using the eductors.) Ship/shore safety checklists shall be completed prior to starting cargo discharge, the cargo system lined up and valves double checked before start.All cargo valves shall be checked closed prior to line up.All hydraulic valves are operated from the Super Cargo XL system mimics or local hydraulic boxes on deck.The following procedure follows on from 2.4.2, in that the IG system is running and within operational parameters, and that the cargo oil pumps are already warmed through and ready for operation.(Note: It is common practice that the COW of cargo tanks is carried out using one of the other grades, with the permission of the shore teminal. Should it be necessary to maintain total segregation, then the slop tanks would have to be discharged first and the main cargo discharge stopped while the COW of the slop tanks was carried out. On completion of the slop tank COW, the slop tanks would be refreshed with the same grade and the main discharge continued. Draining and COW of the remaining set of tanks for this grade can be carried out using the slop tanks for the eductor and tank cleaning drives. The slop tanks would have to be discharged after each segregated grade then refreshed with the following grade ready for the discharge and COW.)a) Ensure all cargo tank IG valves are locked open and all IG spectacle blanks swung in the open position.Position Description ValveLock open Individual COT IG isolating valves ND011, 012, 010, 014 ND015, 013, 018, 017 ND016, 021, 020, 019 ND024, 023, 022, 026 ND025b) Check that the IG deck main isolating valves are open, the cargo top line and ballast spool piece crossovers to the IG line are removed and flanges blanked.Position Description ValveClose Inert gas isolation valve to cargo main line ND003, CL138 CL139, CL140Close Inert gas isolation valve to ballast system ND009, BA341Close Inert gas mast riser valves ND004Close Vapour emission manifold valves ND005, ND006 ND007, ND008c) Ensure that all overboard valves are shut tight and sealed.Position Description ValveClose Starboard sea chest sea valves CL057, CL068Blank Spool piece adjacent to valve CL068Close High overboard valves CL121, CL058Blank Spool piece adjacent to valve CL121(Note: Control of the cargo pumps and stripping operations during discharge is carried out via the Super Cargo XL cargo screen display mimics, with all remote hydraulic valves other than those operated from their local control boxes being operated with the mouse and cursor at the cargo console in the CCR. Indications of all cargo valves and their status are displayed on the mimic panel on the console and on the Super Cargo XL mimic screens.)Procedure to Discharge Group 3 Cargoa) Line up the cargo pump room valves.Position Description ValveOpen Discharge valves to No.1, 2 and 3 top lines CL109, CL110 CL111Open No.1, 2 and 3 pump discharge valves CL085, CL086 CL087Open No.3 bulkhead valve CL050Open Pump room suction crossover valves CL066, CL076 CL064, CL065 CL062, CL063b) Remove the blanks on the required manifold valves and connect the shore hoses.

times due to reqirements where a partial discharge of cargo is required. This will only be carried out where all the stress and stability criteria are met.The partial discharge may consist of one complete parcel of a multigrade cargo or part of a particular grade.Prior to arrival at the discharge port, a cargo plan shall be completed covering all aspects of the proposed discharging operation. This will ensure that the stability, stress, draught and trim are all within acceptable levels throughout the discharge, and comply at all times with terminal restrictions.In addition, the following factors are to be considered and included in the cargo plan prior to the discharge: Maximum available draught at the berth Maximum allowable freeboard on the berth Grade segregation, if carrying multiple grades Crude oil washing requirements Heavy weather ballast requirements and the need to COW No.3 centre COT Maintenance of satisfactory trim and stress Ballasting operationsShip/shore safety checklists shall be completed prior to starting cargo discharge, the cargo system lined up and valves double checked before start.All cargo valves shall be checked closed prior to line up.All hydraulic valves are operated from the Super Cargo XL system mimics or local hydraulic boxes on deck.The following procedure follows on from 2.4.3, in that the IG system is running and within operational parameters, and that the cargo oil pumps are already warmed through and ready for operation.a) Ensure all IG tank valves are locked open and all IG spectacle blanks swung in the open position.Position Description ValveLock open Individual COT IG isolating valves ND011, 012, 010, 014 ND015, 013, 018, 017 ND016, 021, 020, 019 ND024, 023, 022, 026 ND025b) Check that the IG deck main isolating valves are open, cargo top line and ballast spool piece crossovers to the IG line are removed and flanges blanked. Position Description Valve Open Inert gas deck isolation valves ND002, ND001Close Inert gas isolation valve to cargo main line ND003Close Inert gas isolation valve to ballast system ND009, BA3421Close Inert gas mast riser valves ND004Close Vapour emission valves ND031, ND032 ND005, ND006c) Ensure that all overboard valves are shut tight and sealed.Position Description Valve Close Starboard sea chest sea valves CL057, CL068Blank Spool piece adjacent to valve CL068Close High overboard valves CL121, CL058Blank Spool piece adjacent to valve CL121(Note: Control of the cargo pumps and stripping operations during discharge is carried out via the Super Cargo XL cargo screen display mimics, with all remote hydraulic valves other than those operated from their local control boxes being operated with the mouse and cursor at the cargo console in the CCR.

The 30mm nozzle size units have a throughput of 90m3/h, while the 20mm nozzle units have a throughput of 45m3/h. Additionally there are four T-73 non-programmable submerged bottom washer units with throughput of 48m3/h and six GC4000 non-programmable submerged bottom washer units with throughput of 70m3/h. These figures are based on a line pressure of 8kg/cm2. From operational experience it has been judged that a more effective washing of the tanks is obtained when a line pressure of 10kg/cm2 used. The graphs shown in illustration 2.5.2b give the relationship between the line pressure and the jet length and throughput for the 270FT machines. If the line pressure drops below 8kg/cm2 then washing should be stopped until the correct operating pressure can obtained. At no time should the pressure on COW washing line be raised above the line test pressure.There are three programmable 270FT 30mm COW machines located in each centre cargo oil tank plus one non-programmable submerged GC4000 type machine, apart from No.1 centre cargo oil tank which has two GC4000 machines. Each wing cargo oil tank has three 270FT units fitted. The two 20mm diameter nozzle units are located in the slop tanks, one per tank. A tank cleaning main line connects the machines to the main cargo line crossover so that any cargo pump can supply the drive fluid for COW and tank washing requirements. One or both slop tanks can be utilised for tank cleaning operations. A balance line is fitted, principally for use during water washing, or for bottom COW of the cargo tanks. Normal horizontal movement of the nozzle for the programmable units is approximately 1.5 rpm, the pitch angle change can be set to one of four programs using the program control lever. Pitch is the angular difference between two points on the tank side, with the nozzle pointing in the same direction on successive rotations. The elevation for starting the wash can be manually set by winding the gun to the required angle. The bottom washing machines are not programmable and begin operation upon opening the drive fluid supply valve.2.5.2 TANK CLEANING MACHINE DESCRIPTIONDeck Mounted MachinesNo. of units: 45Type: Gunclean 270FT Mark 1, 170 programmable Maker: Consilium ToftejorgNozzle size: 30mmLength of gun: 4mCapacity: 90m3/hOperating pressure: 10kg/cm2No. of units: 2Type: Gunclean 270FT Mark 1, 170 programmable Nozzle size: 20mmLength of gun: 4mCapacity: 45m3/hOperating pressure: 10kg/cm2Tank Mounted MachinesNo. of units: 4Type: T-73Nozzle size: 2 x 16mmCapacity: 48m3/hOperating pressure: 10kg/cm2No. of units: 6Type: GC4000Nozzle size: 25mmCapacity: 70m3/hOperating pressure: 10kg/cm2The main tank cleaning machines are turbine driven, programme selectable, single nozzle units mounted in the tank top. The nozzle rotates in the horizontal plane combined with a very slow vertical movement. The turbine is driven by the power which is generated by the cleaning fluid. The unit revolves at 1.5 rpm, depending on the drive fluid viscosity and the line pressure at the inlet housing. Limited adjustments to speed can be carried out. The machine has four programmes to choose from, all pre-programmed to give a tighter spray pattern in the bottom of the tank. It is also possible to programme the pitch angle of the nozzle to suit the actual tank in which the machine is fitted.The nozzle angle scale indicates the elevation of the nozzle in the vertical plane, and the direction of the nozzle in the horizontal plane is shown by the direction of the tab on top of the lifting rod. See fig.3 illustration 2.5.2a.The estimated time for one full washing cycle at 1.5 rpm and a pitch angle of 1.5 is 75 minutes for the wing tanks, 120 minutes for the centre tanks and 150 minutes for the slop tanks.Verification that the cycle is complete can be ascertained by viewing the indicator on the top of each machine.ProgrammingThe 270FT power unit has a four-programme device built in. These programmes control the spacing of the helical pattern and the pitch angle.The pitch angle is the angle that the nozzle rises or lowers for each revolution of the nozzle in the horizontal plane.Because of the pre-programmed, varying helical pattern, the power unit automatically makes the helical pattern closer at the lower angles, (0 to 30).The steps between the programmes are fixed and are not adjustable.The step between programme 1 to 2 is 1.0 pitchThe step between programme 2 to 3 is 1.0 pitchThe step between programme 3 to full is 5.5 pitch All values valid at 90 liftThe basic pitch angle, the pitch angle of programme 1 can be preset within certain limits by turning the adjusting screw on the programming unit. Because of the fixed steps between the different programmes, adjusting programme 1 also affects the other programmes.The useful angle of programme 1 is 0 to 1.5.2.5/2.5.1/2 Page 2 of 6N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 2.5.2a Tank Cleaning MachineTab - IndicatingNozzle DirectionNozzle Angle ScaleIndicating Nozzle AngleFig. 3Fig. 2Fig. 1Cover Retaining ScrewsHand Crank ScrewFig. 4Programming KnobProgramming KnobAdjusting ScrewRocker AssemblyFig. 5Cover Retaining ScrewsHand Crank Screw1101201003FULL 122.5/2.5.1/2 Page 3 of 6N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftTo Preset Pitch AnglesSee fig 4 illustration 2.5.2a.a) Turn the programming knob to programme 1.b) With the handle turn first the worm screw until the rocker assembly rests on the highest point of the cam.c) Turn the adjusting screw to the point where the rocker starts to lift from the cam.

See fig. 1 illustration 2.5.2a.(Note: On the nozzle angle indicator, open arrows are for down and filled arrows for up.)i) If spot washing is used to clean certain areas in a tank, use the shadow diagrams to find out the horizontal and vertical nozzle angles.j) To start the machine, open the stop valve slowly to avoid liquid shock.k) On completion of tank cleaning, reset the machine to the rest position by cranking the nozzle to the bottom position.Tank Mounted MachinesNo. of units: 4Maker: Consilium ToftejorgType: T-73Nozzle size: 2 x 16mmNo. of units: 6Type: GC4000Nozzle size: 25mmCapacity: 70m3/hOperating pressure: 10kg/cm2The T-73 machine is a submerged gun which is a turbine driven, non-programmable, double nozzle tank cleaning unit, and is used to complement the deck mounted unit by giving coverage to less accessible areas. Two units are fitted in each slop tank.The recommended rotation speed around the vertical axis is 1.5 rpm, which gives a full cycle in the region of 85 minutes when working alone. The machines are started and stopped by simply opening or closing the inlet valve slowly. Operation of these machines can be verified by checking the characteristic sound pattern of the machine.The Gunclean GC4000 is a tank cleaning machine for submerged installations.The cleaning media powers a turbine mounted in the vertical support. The turbine speed is reduced in an epicyclic gear and rotates the vertical housing slowly 360 around a vertical axis and turning the nozzle tube 360 around a near horizontal axis, resulting in a helical cleaning pattern.One revolution of the vertical housing around the vertical axis corresponds to a 3.5 movement of the nozzle around the horizontal axis.The recommended rotation speed around the vertical axis is 1.5 rpm gives a full cycle in about 70 minutes.2.5/2.5.1/2 Page 4 of 6N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final

2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.5.3 CRUDE OIL WASHCargo oil tanks are crude oil washed to comply with both legislation (contingency ballast requirements) and Charterers requirements in order to achieve the maximum out-turn. This basically would be No.3 centre (nominated heavy weather ballast tank) and one quarter of the remainder. However, no tank requires to be washed more than once in four months, with the exception of ballast requirements. A programme for the regular crude washing of cargo tanks is to be maintained. Crude oil washing permits the removal of oil fractions adhering to or deposited on the tank surfaces. These deposits, which would normally remain on board after discharge, are then discharged with the cargo. As a consequence, the need to water wash to remove residues is virtually eliminated. Water rinsing will be necessary if the tank is to be used for clean ballast. A typical crude oil washing program is as follows:1st Voyage: No.2 COT port and starboard, No.3 COT port, centre and starboard, No.4 COT port and starboard, slop tanks port and starboard. 2nd Voyage: No.1 COT centre, No.2 COT centre, No.3 COT port, centre and starboard, No.4 COT centre, No.5 COT centre, slop port and starboard. 3rd Voyage: No.1 COT port and starboard, No.3 COT port, centre and starboard, No.5 COT centre, slop port and starboard.Leakage of crude oil from the COW system is a potential fire and pollution hazard. Before use, the system should be pressure tested to working pressure and any leaks made good.During operation the system must be kept under continuous observation and crude oil washing stopped when any sign of leakage or malfunction is detected.Before commencing COW it is necessary to debottom all COTs, including the slop tanks. This will remove any water that may have settled during transit, thus considerably reducing static charges that may be created during washing. If the slop tanks are to be used for crude oil washing, it is, subject to grade segregation, usually advisable to empty the slop tanks and recharge them with fresh dry crude prior to commencement. The levels to which the slop tanks are recharged are arbitrary, but sufficient ullage is required in the clean slop tank (starboard), to allow for the cargo pump to maintain suction and the balance line to remain covered. The balance line is at approximately the half volume level in the starboard (clean) slop tank, and 0.4m above the tank bottom in the port (dirty) slop tank. This method of COW allows for greater ullage and easier monitoring of the crude oil returns, but it is quite feasible to utilise a single slop tank for the operation, reducing the level occasionally to maintain a safe ullage. COTs are crude oil washed during discharge by pumping dry crude, at a back pressure of about 10kg/cm2, the drive comes from the dedicated tank cleaning pump, via the tank cleaning line to the tank cleaning machines. Additionally, the drive can be bled off from any of the main cargo pumps. The eductors driven by the same tank cleaning pump that is being used to drive the COW machines, are used to drain the oil fractions from the cargo tank bottom to a slop tank. Good draining is essential during COW operations. If the portable COW machines are to be used for spot cleaning, then it is of utmost importance that the bonding wire is securely attached to the machine head before use, and the earthing clamp made fast to an earthing post.2.5/2.5.3 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 2.5.4a Closed Cycle Washing No.3 CentreKeyDeck Mounted TypeTank Cleaning MachineSubmerged Type TankCleaning MachineSea WaterHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPIHHHHHSeaChestHHHTank CleaningHeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHCL251VCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL057VSteam and AirCondensateNo.1No.2No.3Cargo Oil Pumps(5,500m3/h x150mth)Tank Cleaning Pump (3,000m3/h x150mth)Cargo Oil Stripping Pump (450m3/h x150mth)8k AirFromWater BallastSystemSampling PointCL068VCL184VCL177VCL163VCL183VCL178VCL164VCL182VCL179VCL165VCL181VCL123VCL122VCL134VCL096VBilgeSuction(Aft)BilgeSuction(Fwd)BilgeSuction(VoidSpace)CL097VCL270VFromVacuumSystem FromFireLineCL180VCL166VCL059VCL065VCL064VCL069VCL063VCL062VCL060VCL061VCL087VCL120VCL095VCL071VCL076VCL077VCL074VCL075VCL072VCL073VCL119VCL086VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL091VCL090VCL093VCL092VCL124VCL054VCL252VCL055VCL272VCL050VCL053VCL253VCL051VCL071VCL052VCL056VCL125VCL126VCL127VCL130V CL082VCL254VCL136V CL137VCL161VCL168VCL078VCL084VCL269VCL128VCL129VCL267VNo.1No.2Cargo OilStrippingEductors(700m3/h)ToOverboardPump Room BilgeStripping Eductors(10m3/h)CL083VCL080VCL079VCL081VCL094VCL135VCL009VCL030VCL007VCL001VCL011VCL017VCL020VCL191VCL262VCL002VCL028VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL042VCL041VCL043VCL044VCL045VCL040VCL027VCL046VCL026VCL014VCL047VCL025VCL048VCL024VCL049VCL039VCL008VCL029VCL010VCL031VCL012VCL032VCL015VCL034VCL018VCL036VCL021VCL038VCL261V CL260V CL259VCL013VCL033VCL016VCL035VCL019VCL037VCL022VCL263VCL023VCL268VNo.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.4CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.4Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Stb'd)Slop Tank(Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)Slop Tank (Port)Slop Tank(Stb'd)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)Slop Tank (Stb'd)CargoLineTo MARPOLLineCargoLineCargoLineCO001VCO078VCO076VCO073VCO072VCO065VCO054VCO045VCO038VCO063VCO056VCO077VCO075VCO067VCO066VCO059VCO057VCO048VCO039VCO032VCO030VCO050VCO101VCO074VCO064VCO055VCO046VCO037VCO007VCO105VCO043VCO005VCO035VCO109VCO004V CO003VCO100VCO068VCO058VCO049VCO040VCO031VCO022VCO029VCO108VCO013VCO027VCO053VCO012VCO028VCO014VCO103VCO011VCO019VCO051VCO042VCO060VCO070VCO020VCO010VCO106VCO102VCO052VCO025VCO026V CO002VCO008VCO006VCO018VCO044VCO047VCO036VCO041VCO109VCO107VCO061VCO104VCO021VCO069VCO062VCO071VCO023VCO016VCO017VCO095VCO093VCO090VCO087VCO084VCO083VCO080VCO094VCO091VCO088VCO085VCO082VCO079VCO092VCO089VCO086VCO112VCO034VCO111VCO033VCO110VCO024VCO081VCL277VCL122VHHCL286VHHCL070V2.5/2.5.4 Page 1 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.5.4 WATER WASH (COLD OR HOT)Cold washing (water rinsing) of COTs is required for the following purposes: Prior to the ballasting of COTs which have previously been crude oil washed, where the ballast is to be treated as clean ballast. Prior to refit, or the inspection of COTs that have previously been crude oil washed.(Note: Control of the pumps and valves during tank cleaning operations is carried out via the Super Cargo XL cargo screen display mimics, with all remote hydraulic valves other than those operated from their local control boxes being operated with the mouse and cursor at the cargo console in the CCR. Indications of all cargo valves and their status are displayed on the mimic panel on the console and on the Super Cargo XL mimic screens. All tank cleaning valves and the wash water inlet and outlet on the tank cleaning heater are manually operated. As an aid, the status of the manual valves on the screen mimics can be shown by clicking on the manually operated valves which will then turn to the line operation colour.)Procedure for Operation of the COW SystemWhen preparing the system for tank cleaning, it is important to ensure that all valves are in the closed position prior to setting the lines. a) Ensure the COT to be washed is inerted and that the oxygen content is less than 8%.b) Drain all crude oil from the tank cleaning main to the slop tank, by opening a slop tank cleaning machine and one of the machines at the forward end of the tank cleaning main. Ensure these valves are closed prior to commencement of tank cleaning.c) Keeping both the main sea valves shut, line up the stripping pump from the sea chest to the port slop tank.d) Open the slop tank balance line.e) Start the stripping pump so as to create a vacuum at the inboard side of the sea suction.f) Open the inboard sea valve, check for a vacuum, then open the outboard sea valve.g) Line up the tank cleaning pump for tank washing from the sea suction to the tank cleaning main, and to the port slop tank via the eductors.(Note: The vessel is fitted with a tank cleaning pump but any of the cargo oil pumps can also be used.)h) Start the tank cleaning pump.i) When the tank cleaning pump has suction, stop the stripping pump and shut it down.j) Charge the slop tanks to a level that is higher than the balance line outlet in the starboard slop tank. k) Change over the tank cleaning pump from the sea suction to the starboard slop tank suction, discharging to the port slop tank through the eductors. The eductors are used to drain the tank being washed.l) Open the stripping suctions on the COT to be washed.m) Open the required tank cleaning machines. Complete at least one full pattern. The patterns given are for a general wash, the actual duration required will be found with experience. A slight port list is beneficial for draining purposes.n) Monitor the slop tank ullages and total quantities carefully. The above method of water wash is entitled closed cycle, and is considered to be the most manageable and controlled method of tank washing.Closed Cycle WashingAssuming No.3 centre COT is being washed for inspection using the tank cleaning pump.a) Commence with all valves closed.Position Description Valve Open Stripping pump suction valves to sea chest CL082, CL071, CL069, CL070.Open Stripping pump discharge valves to CL096, CL122, port slop tank CL272.Open Slop tank balance line valve CL039 a) Start the stripping pump.

These blanks must be returned to the closed position after the hot wash is completed.i) Open the stripping line bulkhead valve CL053, stripping line valves CL261 and CL260 and the stripping suction valves from No.3 centre cargo oil tank CL047 and CL026. Open the eductor suction valves CL078 and CL079.j) Open the individual tank cleaning machine isolating valves on No.3 centre cargo oil tank. No.3 cargo oil tank is now being water washed on a closed cycle. Maintain the required pressure for the tank cleaning machines and eductor drive by regulating on the tank cleaning pump discharge valve. Hot Water WashIn addition to the tank cleaning heater, both slop tanks are fitted with steam heating coils. This will aid in maintaining the temperature of the water during the hot wash process.The tank cleaning heater and slop tank heating coils stream supply is fed from the engine room 10kg/cm2 system.Each slop tank is fitted with six 158m heating coils, the heating ratio for each tank is 0.031m2 per m3.When the tank heating heater is required for use, the spectacle blanks on the inlet and outlet sides will have to be changed over into the open position. These blanks ensure that the steam system and engine room are isolated from the cargo oil products. After completion of tank washing with water with the tank cleaning heater in line, these blanks MUST be returned to the closed position.The steam inlet and condensate returns from the tank cleaning heater are controlled from the Super Cargo XL system screen displays in the CCR. Each tank is fitted with a steam header and a condensate header. There are drain valves on the steam header and on the condensate header, which are used to test the quality of the condensate returns. The condensate from the slop tank heating coils, deck seal heating coil and tank cleaning heater is led back to the feed filter tank through the atmospheric condenser and an inspection tank in the engine room. The normal method of testing the coils is simply to crack steam on to the system and test the quality of the condensate returns. WARNINGWater hammer in steam lines can be a problem resulting in possible damage to the pipe system and even steam line failure resulting in scalding of personnel. It is essential that all steam lines are drained of condensate and that steam be supplied to cold lines gradually with line drain valves open. This allows the steam line to warm through and for the condensate to drain.Procedure for the Operation of the Slop Tank Heating SystemAll valves and drains are closed.a) Open the main condensate return valve to the engine room, directing the slop tanks heating condensate to the atmospheric condenser.b) Open the deck steam pressure regulator isolating valves, SG009V and SG010V, steam will now be available to the slop tank heating coils and the tank cleaning heater. c) Open the steam inlet header drain valve SA035 and SA036, then crack open the header steam isolating valve SA001 and SA002. When the drains run clear close the drain valve.d) Open the condensate drain valve on the condensate header and on each coil fully.e) Open the steam inlets to each coil and warm through each coil slowly, until the steam header isolating valve is fully open.f) Check the drain cocks on each coil for any contamination.g) When all the drains have run clear open the condensate header return isolating valve SA027 and HC62.h) Open the condensate outlet valves from each coil then close the drain valves.If traces of oil emerge at the condensate drains valves, inform the chief officer and shut off the steam supply to that coil.i) Monitor the observation tank for contamination.Shutting Down the System a) Shut off all individual tank steam and condensate valves.b) Open drain valves to prevent a vacuum forming which could draw in oil through any pipe defects.c) Close drain valves when the coils have reached ambient temperature, in order to prevent ingress of sea water during heavy weather.d) Close the main supply and return valves. Contamination If contamination should occur at the observation tank proceed as follows:a) Check the condensate drains on each slop tank and locate the defective coil.b) Isolate the defective heating coil and insert blanks in the steam inlet and condensate outlet lines.c) Proceed to heat the tank using the other coils.Testing the CoilsThe modern materials and the continuous welded construction used in the heating coils tend to offer reliable service. Routine testing by checking the condensate outlet when putting the system into use will normally suffice. However, pin holes can develop at welds and loose pipe brackets can cause fretting.If contamination occurs, at the next possible opportunity, test the defective coil. This is done by supplying steam to the coil with the outlet valve closed, making a tank entry and locating the leakage.A permanent repair will, in most cases, require welding. This would be carried out during refit. A near permanent repair can be carried out by cutting the coil in way of the defect and inserting a Yorkshire coupling.2.5/2.5.4 Page 4 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY2.6 Gas Freeing 2.6.1 Gas Freeing for Entry 2.6.2 Gas Freeing for Hot WorkIllustrations 2.6a Gas FreeingIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 2.6a Gas FreeingACDBFDilution with AirFlammableMixtureOxygen - Percentage by VolumeFlammability CompositionHydrocarbonGas-PercentagebyVolumeDilutionwithInertGasCritical Dilution with AirDilution with AirHE5G10150 5 10 15 20 21Note: This diagram is illustrative only and should not be used fordeciding upon acceptable gas compositions in practical casesPortableFanGas FreeingFresh AirFresh AirFresh Air from I.G.

Cargo oil tanks must never be entered when inerted. Prior to gas freeing any COT or gaseous space, the hydrocarbon content must be below 2% Hc, thus ensuring that the space will not pass through the flammable envelope as the oxygen percentage increases. (See Flammability Composition Diagram - Hydrocarbon Gas/Air/Inert Gas Mixture.) It is important to locally isolate tanks that are to be gas freed, so that inert gas cannot enter these tanks from adjacent, inerted tanks. The first stage in the gas freeing process is called purging. Common practice is to purge a couple of tanks at a time and monitor the gas emitted until it is below 2% Hc. This method is termed replacing a tank atmosphere by DILUTION. The inert gas at high velocity is injected through the cargo main suction valves and mixes with the gaseous atmosphere, which is then vented through the inert gas main to the vent riser. 2.6.1 Gas Freeing for Entrya) Line up the inert gas plant to supply IG to the cargo main by fitting the spool piece on the cross connecting line.b) Monitor the emissions until the hydrocarbon meter readings are less than 2% Hc.c) Upon completion of purging, the IG plant must be stopped, the pressure of the IG main minimised and the tank hatch opened. d) Close the inert gas inlet valve and swing the spectacle blank into the closed position to the tank being gas freed. The tank can now be gas freed using the portable fans. e) Monitor the tank atmosphere for oxygen until the readings are 21% O2.f) Carefully monitor for LEL and ensure that the reading is consistently below 1% but preferably zero. g) Test for H2S if necessary. Alternative Method for Gas Freeing after the Cargo Oil Tanks have been PurgedIn the event that several, or all, the COTs are to be gas freed; after the tanks have been purged, the inert gas fan(s) can be changed over to blow air to the tanks:a) Check that all the COTs that are to be gas freed have been isolated, their IG inlet valve shut and the spectacle piece turned to the closed position. b) Change over the inert gas blowers to fresh air blowing. c) Restart one blower and blow air to the COT to be gas freed, via the spectacle piece cross connecting into the cargo top line. All lines must have been well drained.d) Vent through the tank hatch. Gas free one COT at a time. e) Monitor the oxygen at all levels in the cargo tank until 21% O2 is achieved.f) Carefully test the tank for LEL and ensure that the LEL is zero. If deemed necessary, test the COT for H2S to ensure that it is within acceptable limits.A Responsible Person is to Take ChargeA responsible officer will take charge of the entry operation, this person will be appointed by the Master, Chief Engineer or chief officer.Potential Hazards to be IdentifiedOxygen deficiency and/or the presence of toxic substances or flammable vapours.Space Prepared and Secured for EntryThe space to be entered is to be secured against the ingress of dangerous substances. Valves are to have a positive method of displaying if open or shut, and of preventing them from being operated while entry is taking place. The OOW on watch on the bridge, or on the main deck, is to be informed of any tank entry.Atmosphere TestedThe COT atmosphere is to be tested for both oxygen and LEL, at different levels and sections, and if remote checking cannot take place, entry is to be made wearing breathing apparatus, in a fully controlled manner. A Permit to Work certificate, of limited duration, will be required.Entry into a space, without the use of breathing apparatus, is only permitted when the oxygen content is 21%, and the flammable gas content is nil. Where readings have been steady for some time up to 1% LEL is acceptable, in conjunction with the 21% oxygen.Permit to Work CompletedA permit to work must be completed before entry. The permit should be of limited duration and should, in any case, not have a validity in excess of 24 hours.Pre-Entry Preparations MadeThe space must be thoroughly ventilated and the atmosphere tested and found safe for entry without breathing apparatus. Rescue and resuscitation equipment is to be at the entrance to the space, along with a responsible person who will maintain constant and full communications with the personnel throughout the time they are in the space. He will also maintain communications with the OOW. All equipment is to be checked as being intrinsically safe. Procedures During Entry Ventilation is to be continued throughout the entry period. Should the ventilation fail, the operation is to be stopped and the personnel in the tank are to exit to the deck immediately.The atmosphere must be tested at regular intervals to verify that it is still safe. Personal portable gas sampling equipment is supplied for this purpose. Careful monitoring of the personnel in the tank is to be carried out. Should the responsible person note any adverse signs, they are to issue the recall signal immediately and advise the OOW, who will sound the alarm and summon assistance. In a similar manner, should any person in the tank feel adversely affected, in any way, they are to warn their companions and vacate the tank immediately.2.6/2.6.1 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.6.2 GAS FREEING FOR HOT WORKIn addition to the requirements of section 2.6 and 2.6.1 the following are to be complied with:All the necessary terminal and port authority approvals are to be obtained.A Hot Work Permit is to be issued.Hot work must not reduce the vessels fire fighting potential.Appropriate fire fighting equipment is to be ready for immediate use, including hoses run out and the fire pumps running.All sludge scale and sediment for a distance of at least ten metres around the hot work area must be removed, including from the reverse side of frames and bulkheads. The adjacent tanks and spaces should be checked and rendered safe by either gas freeing or filling with water.The COW line should be continuously pressurised from the fire main.Cargo lines must have been thoroughly washed and be kept flooded with sea water.If necessary, bunker tanks should be ventilated (where the LEL is in excess of 5%).An adjacent bunker tank can be considered safe when the level of fuel oil is well above the level at which the work is being carried out and the LEL in its ullage space is below 5%.All cargo and pump room valves are to be locked closed, or inhibited with a DO NOT OPERATE sign, posted for the duration of the repair period.2.6/2.6.2 Page 1 of 1N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY2.7 Ballasting and Deballasting Operations 2.7.1 Heavy Weather Ballasting 2.7.2 Line Cleaning 2.7.3 Oil Discharge Monitoring EquipmentIllustrations 2.7a Ballasting Operations 2.7b Deballasting Operations 2.7.1a Heavy Weather Ballasting 2.7.1b Heavy Weather Deballasting 2.7.2a Line Draining 2.7.2b Line Cleaning No.3 Main Cargo Pump 2.7.2c Line Cleaning No.2 Main Cargo Pump 2.7.2d Line Cleaning No.1 Main Cargo Pump 2.7.2e Line Cleaning Tank Cleaning Pump 2.7.2f Line Cleaning Stripping Pump 2.7.3a Oil Discharge Monitoring EquipmentIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 2.7a Ballasting OperationsMMA AKeyBallast Water Main SuctionBallast Water Stripping SuctionVacuum Pump UnitFromInert Gas MainBA345BA334BA337BA322BA310BA320BA308BA318BA306BA316BA304BA314BA311BA361BA362BA312BA302BA321BA309BA319BA307BA317BA305BA315BA303BA313BA301Upper DeckHydraulicControl PipeBA342SeparatorNo.2 WaterBallast Pump4,000m3/hBA338BA357BA343 BA331To Cargo OilSystemBA327 BA363BA364BA333 BA336BA360BA359BA330 BA326BA323BA332BA324BA334BA335BA325No.2No.1SeaChestSeparatorNo.1 WaterBallast Pump4,000m3/hBA339BA358EngineRoomSealTankUpper Deck Upper DeckNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5 Water BallastTank StarboardPipe TrunkingNo.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)ForePeakTankND009BA341BA356BA329HAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HHHHHHHHHHBA328HBA340VU011V2.7 Page 1 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.7 BALLASTING AND DEBALLASTING OPERATIONSBallastingThe ballast system is normally empty and dry prior to ballasting, it is, therefore essential to start ballasting slowly in order to avoid damaging the ballast line with surge pressure.Upon commencing discharge of cargo and in accordance with the chief officers discharging plan, line up the ballast system to run in permanent ballast to selected tanks. Where possible, do not stop running into a tank until the double bottom is full and the water level is into the side tank area. This is in order to minimise the free surface effects. Care is essential to ensure that excessive stress, trim and list are avoided and that draught restrictions are not exceeded. CAUTIONKeep ballast pump discharge valves shut to avoid ballast pump elements rotating during the running in of ballast.a) Prior to commencing cargo or ballast operations check that valves CL134 and BA340, the emergency cargo oil line connection valves are closed, and that the spool piece in the connection to the cargo system is removed. Also check that valve BA341, the isolation valve from the IG main is closed and that the spool piece is removed.b) Run in ballast to approximately the draught of the vessel i.e. to a level whereby pumping ballast would prove more efficient than running ballast. c) Reset the ballast lines so that both pumps are pumping from sea to the ballast tanks. (See section 1.7.2 for direction on setting up the automatic ballast stripping system and priming the ballast lines and pumps.)During ballasting it is advisable to keep the ballast system common and the pumps on similar load and back pressures. This ensures that the ballast wing tanks fill evenly and that in the event of a list, various ballast tanks can be partly closed without affecting the pumps. d) Fill the majority of ballast tanks very close to the tank coaming (i.e. ensure that ballast tanks are at least 98% full without overfilling them). This ensures that the possibility of steel corrosion is minimised. e) Shut down the ballast system upon completion of ballasting. f) Always inspect the quality of the ballast as soon as possible after completion in order to ensure that it is clean.To Run in Ballast Initially all valves closed.Position Description ValveOpen No.3 ballast tank suction valves BA305, BA306Open Ballast pump suction valves BA330, BA331Open Ballast line main isolation valves BA326, BA327Open Mid ballast line isolating valves BA364, BA363Open Ballast line crossover valves BA360, BA359Open Forward crossover valves BA361, BA362Open Ballast pump sea suction valves BA332, BA333a) Ensure the automatic stripping is set to OFF and the VP and GEV are set to MANU.b) Crack open the sea suction valve BA324 to prime the ballast line and flood the separator receivers. When the ballast line is fully primed and the separators indicate 70% full, open the sea valve fully.c) Run sea water into No.3 WBT until the level is well into the side tank then change to another pair of WBTs. When all the ballast tanks have completed running in:Position Description ValveClosed Ballast pump(s) discharge valves BA338 BA339Close Ballast pump suction valves BA331 BA330Open Ballast main suction/discharge isolators BA329 BA328d) Ensure that both ballast pumps have been set up for operation in the engine room and are ready for warming through via the Super Cargo XL screen mimic displays. When the pumps have completed the warming up run up to minimum speed. When the pumps are up to minimum speed, open the pump(s) discharge valve up to 75%. In any case, the pump discharge valve should not remain closed for more that 30 seconds after the pump has reached minimum speed. Increase the pump speed to give the required throughput. e) Reduce the pump discharge rate and top off the ballast tanks, stopping each pair at the required ullage.f) On completion of ballasting operations shut the pumps down and close all valves.g) Fill in the ballast water record book and ballast water management record books as necessary.2.7 Page 2 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 2.7b Deballasting OperationsMMA AKeyBallast Water Main SuctionBallast Water Stripping SuctionVacuum Pump UnitFromInert Gas MainBA345BA334BA337BA322BA310BA320BA308BA318BA306BA316BA304BA314BA311BA361BA362BA312BA302BA321BA309BA319BA307BA317BA305BA315BA303BA313BA301Upper DeckHydraulicControl PipeBA342SeparatorNo.2 WaterBallast Pump4,000m3/hBA338BA357BA343 BA331To Cargo OilSystemBA327 BA363BA364BA333 BA336BA360BA359BA330 BA326BA323BA332BA324BA334BA335BA325No.2No.1SeaChestSeparatorNo.1 WaterBallast Pump4,000m3/hBA339BA358EngineRoomSealTankUpper Deck Upper DeckNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5 Water BallastTank StarboardPipe TrunkingNo.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)ForePeakTankND009BA341BA356BA329HAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HHHHHHHHHBA328HBA340VU011VHHH2.7 Page 3 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftDeballastingWARNINGThe greatest free surface effect is when the ballast tanks are at a sounding of 3m or less, when the water level has cleared the trunkway in the side tanks and is solely in the double bottom area. If, at the same time, the cargo level is low, the combined effect of a relatively small displacement and the free surface effect in the cargo ballast tanks could result in a negative GM which may lead to the vessel developing an angle of loll.Deballasting should commence as soon after loading commences as practicable but in accordance with the chief officers loading plan. However, careful planning is essential to maintain the vessel at a suitable draught and trim consistent with weather conditions and any berth limitations. The freeboard may need to be limited to that which can be safely accommodated by the loading booms or flexible hoses.Procedure for Deballastinga) Set the ballast lines for the running out of ballast and run the selected ballast tanks to sea.b) When the first set have run to sea, shut them off and run the remaining ballast tanks to sea in the planned sequence.c) Shut the sea valve and line up both ballast pumps, pumping from selected tanks to sea through the high overboard discharge. d) Systematically pump out the bulk of ballast from all the ballast tanks. e) Set up the automatic unloading system when tank levels are nearing approximately 1m and change over from the main suctions to stripping suctions.f) Drain one set of tanks at a time to minimise turbulence and excessive movement on the pump discharge valve.g) The automatic unloading system will indicate when the tank is empty.If the automatic unloading system is not used the eductor system can be utilised.h) Suspend bulk discharge of the ballast and line up either of the ballast pumps on the eductor system, taking driving water from the sea suction. i) Commence educting the ballast tanks ensuring that the back pressure of the ballast pump is at least 3.5 bar through the eductors.j) Reduce the sounding in all tanks to the minimum possible (usually less than 2cm). This will avoid the possibility of deadfreight, mud formation and excessive bottom corrosion.k) Shut down the ballast system upon completion of draining.To Run Out BallastCommence with all valves shut.a) Prior to commencing cargo or ballast operations check that valves BA340 and CL134, the emergency cargo oil line connection valves are closed and that the spool piece in the connection to the cargo system is removed. Also check that valve BA341, the isolation valve from the IG main, is closed and that the spool piece is removed.Position Description ValveOpen No.3 ballast tank suction valves BA305, BA306Open Ballast line main isolation valves BA326, BA327Open Mid ballast line isolating valves BA364, BA363b) Ensure the automatic stripping is set to OFF and the VP and GEV are set to MANU.

Increase the pump speed to give the required throughput. e) Pump out and drain the WBTs in a sequence with the loading of the cargo.f) As the first tanks near draining level, the automatic unloading system should be set up as described in section 1.7.2.g) As the level in the tank falls, open the stripping suction valve and close the main suction to drain the tank fully.h) The automatic unloading system will indicate when the tank is empty.The vessel also has stripping eductors as an alternative means of draining the ballast tanks.To Drain No.3 WBT (For Example)Position Description ValveOpen No.3 WBT stripping suctions BA317, BA318Open Eductor suction valves BA337, BA336Open Eductor drive water valves BA334, BA335Open Ballast pump sea suction valve BA332 or BA333Open Sea valve BA324i) Stop the ballast pump not required for educting.Position Description ValveClose Discharge valve of the pump not BA357 or BA358 being used for eductor drivingClose Ballast pump suction valves BA330, BA331Close Ballast overboard isolating valve BA325j) Drain each of the other pairs of WBTs in turn.The eductor drive water pressure can either be adjusted by adjusting the pump speed or by closing in on the pump discharge valve.2.7 Page 4 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPTHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPTPTHHHHHSeaChestHHHSea WaterTC HeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HH HH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHHHHHHH H H HH H H HKeyHHCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL198VCL106VCL107VCL108VCL195VIllustration 2.7.1a Heavy Weather BallastingCL057VSteam and AirCondensateNo.1No.2No.3Cargo Oil Pumps(5,500m3/h x150mth)Tank Cleaning Pump (3,000m3/h x150mth)Cargo Oil Stripping Pump (450m3/h x150mth)8k Air8k AirFromWater BallastSystemSampling PointPipe TrunkCL068VCL184VCL177VCL163VCL183VCL178VCL164VCL182VCL179VCL165VCL181VCL140VCL133VCL138VCL131VCL139VCL132VCL123VCL251VCL122VCL134VTo Tank Cleaning MainCL096VBilgeSuction(Aft)BilgeSuction(Fwd)BilgeSuction(VoidSpace)Cargo Oil Stripping LineNo.1 Cargo Main LineNo.2 Cargo Main LineNo.3 Cargo Main LineCL097VCL270VCL256VFromVacuumSystem FromFire LineFromInert GasMainCL180VCL166VCL059VCL065VCL064VCL069VCL063VCL062VCL060VCL061VCL087VCL120VCL095VCL071VCL076VCL077VCL074VCL075VCL072VCL073VCL119VCL086VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL091VCL090VCL093VCL092VCL124VCL054VCL252VCL055VCL272VCL277VCL050VCL053VCL253VCL109VCL110VCL111V CL116V CL117VCL147VCL101VCL148VCL112V CL113VCL114V CL115VCL121VCL051VCL071VCL052VCL056VCL125VCL126VCL127VCL130V CL082VCL254VCL136VCL137VCL161VCL168VCL078VCL084VCL058VCL269VCL128VCL129VCL267VCL201VCL200VNo.1No.2Cargo OilStrippingEductors(700m3/h)Pump Room BilgeStripping Eductors(10m3/h)CL083VCL080VCL079VCL081VCL094VCL135VCL255VCL206VCL213VCL225VCL160VCL159VCL158VCL212VCL226VCL211VCL227VCL210VCL228VCL145VCL100VCL146VCL207VCL143VCL099VCL144VCL208VCL141VCL098VCL142VCL209VCL149VCL009VCL030VCL007VCL001VCL011VCL017VCL020VCL191VCL262VCL002VCL028VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL042VCL041VCL043VCL044VCL045VCL040VCL027VCL046VCL026VCL014VCL047VCL025VCL048VCL024VCL049VCL039VCL008VCL029VCL010VCL031VCL012VCL032VCL015VCL034VCL018VCL036VCL021VCL038VCL261V CL260V CL259VCL013VCL033VCL016VCL035VCL019VCL037VCL022VCL263VCL023VCL102VCL150VCL205VCL214VCL224VCL157VCL215VCL223VCL216VCL222VCL217VCL221VCL151VCL103VCL152VCL204VCL153VCL104VCL154VCL203VCL155VCL105VCL156VCL202VCL268VCL197VCL194VNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.4CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Stb'd)Slop Tank(Port)Slop Tank(Stb'd)No.5 StarboardWater BallastTankNo.4 COTPort WingNo.4 COTStarboard WingNo.3 COTPort WingCL199VCL264VHCL286VCL070V2.7/2.7.1 Page 1 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft2.7.1 HEAVY WEATHER BALLASTINGThe ballast system is described in section 2.7. In the event of extreme weather conditions, where the Master considers that it would be prudent to ballast one or more sets of COTs, then the following procedure should be adopted:a) Ensure that at the discharge port, heavy weather ballast tanks are suitably prepared in accordance with MARPOL 73/78 requirements. Normally No.3 centre COT is used.b) Ensure that all the cargo lines to be used are well drained.c) Carefully calculate the stress, trim and stability. To avoid sloshing, aim to ballast each COT to 98% capacity.d) One of the MCPs may be used utilising the main sea valves and the pump room direct loading lines.e) Where ballast is put into a tank which has been crude oil washed but not water rinsed, then the ballast in that tank is to be treated as dirty ballast. A COT may not be used for additional ballast unless it was crude oil washed at the discharge port. At the onset of improved weather, or as soon after as is practicable, the additional ballast should be discharged. This COT ballast must be discharged according to MARPOL 73/78 regulations in sea areas acceptable to the signatories. In addition COT ballast must be discharged with the ODME operational.Ballasting No.3 Centre COT using No.2 Main Cargo PumpIn this instance it is assumed that No.3 centre has not been water rinsed and will be classed as dirty ballast.(Note: The COPTs are set up for operation in the engine room and when ready, warming through, run up and speed control is carried out from the Super Cargo XL screen mimic displays. When the pumps are up to speed, open the pump(s) discharge valve fully. The stripping pump is also controlled from the Super Cargo XL screen displays in the CCR, although warming through the steam lines must be carried out manually in the pump room.)Commence with all valves closed:Position Description ValveOpen Stripping pump suction to sea crossover valve CL071 CL069 CL070Open Stripping pump suction valves CL082Open Stripping pump discharge valves to the CL122, CL272 port slop tankOpen Stripping pump discharge valve CL096Open No.2 COP discharge valve CL086Open No.2 COP discharge line to the port slop tank CL110 via No.2 bottom line, the No.2 to No.3 CL107 group isolation valves and the No.3 CL006, CL005 bottom line CL023, CL263 a) Check the drain line between the sea water ship side valve CL057 and the spectacle blank to ensure that valve CL068 is not passing.b) Swing the spectacle blank on the sea water suction between CL057 and CL068.

During the operation a good check must be kept on the IG pressure.Excess pressure can be vented via the vent mast riser.On completion of ballasting No.3 centre, it is considered prudent to drain No.3 bottom line to the port slop tank using the stripping pump. If at any time the cargo pump should be stopped, for any reason, the pump suction valve to the sea line and the sea valve should be closed immediately. Prior to restarting the cargo pump, the stripping pump must be used to place a positive vacuum on the sea valve, which may then be opened, and a flow resumed to the port slop tank in the manner previously outlined.When the ballasting procedure is complete the spectacle blank in the sea water line must be returned to the closed position.2.7/2.7.1 Page 2 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPTHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPTPTHHHHHSeaChestHHHSea WaterTank CleaningHeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HH HH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHHHHHHH H H HH H H HKeyHHCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL198VCL106VCL107VCL108VCL195VIllustration 2.7.1b Heavy Weather DeballastingCL057VSteam and AirCondensateNo.1No.2No.3Cargo Oil Pumps(5,500m3/h x150mth)Tank Cleaning Pump (3,000m3/h x150mth)Cargo Oil Stripping Pump (450m3/h x150mth)8k Air8k AirFromWater BallastSystemSampling PointPipe TrunkCL068VCL184VCL177VCL163VCL183VCL178VCL164VCL182VCL179VCL165VCL181VCL140VCL133VCL138VCL131VCL139VCL132VCL123VCL251VCL122VCL134VTo Tank Cleaning MainCL096VBilgeSuction(Aft)BilgeSuction(Fwd)BilgeSuction(VoidSpace)Cargo Oil Stripping LineNo.1 Cargo Main LineNo.2 Cargo Main LineNo.3 Cargo Main LineCL097VCL270VCL256VFromVacuumSystem FromFire LineFromInert GasMainCL180VCL166VCL059VCL065VCL064VCL069VCL063VCL062VCL060VCL061VCL087VCL120VCL095VCL071VCL076VCL077VCL074VCL075VCL072VCL073VCL119VCL086VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL091VCL090VCL093VCL092VCL124VCL054VCL252VCL055VCL272VCL277VCL050VCL053VCL253VCL109VCL110VCL111V CL116V CL117VCL147VCL101VCL148VCL112V CL113VCL114V CL115VCL121VCL051VCL071VCL052VCL056VCL125VCL126VCL127VCL130V CL082VCL254VCL136VCL137VCL161VCL168VCL078VCL084VCL058VCL269VCL128VCL129VCL267VCL201VCL200VNo.1No.2Cargo OilStrippingEductors(700m3/h)Pump Room BilgeStripping Eductors(10m3/h)CL083VCL080VCL079VCL081VCL094VCL135VCL255VCL206VCL213VCL225VCL160VCL159VCL158VCL212VCL226VCL211VCL227VCL210VCL228VCL145VCL100VCL146VCL207VCL143VCL099VCL144VCL208VCL141VCL098VCL142VCL209VCL149VCL009VCL030VCL007VCL001VCL011VCL017VCL020VCL191VCL262VCL002VCL028VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL042VCL041VCL043VCL044VCL045VCL040VCL027VCL046VCL026VCL014VCL047VCL025VCL048VCL024VCL049VCL039VCL008VCL029VCL010VCL031VCL012VCL032VCL015VCL034VCL018VCL036VCL021VCL038VCL261V CL260V CL259VCL013VCL033VCL016VCL035VCL019VCL037VCL022VCL263VCL023VCL102VCL150VCL205VCL214VCL224VCL157VCL215VCL223VCL216VCL222VCL217VCL221VCL151VCL103VCL152VCL204VCL153VCL104VCL154VCL203VCL155VCL105VCL156VCL202VCL268VCL197VCL194VNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.4CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Stb'd)Slop Tank(Port)Slop Tank(Stb'd)No.5 StarboardWater BallastTankNo.4 COTPort WingNo.4 COTStarboard WingNo.3 COTPort WingCL199VCL264VHCL286VCL070V2.7/2.7.1 Page 3 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftDeballasting No.3 Centre COT Using No.2 Main Cargo Pumpa) Swing the ODME overboard discharge spectacle piece between valves CL121 and CL058. b) Inert gas will be required during this operation.Position Description ValveOpen No.2 MCP suction and No.2 line CL060 bulkhead master valve on No.2 bottom line CL051Open No.2 MCP discharge to the high overboard CL090 discharge valve CL091 CL094c) Complete checks on the ODME.Position Description ValveOpen High overboard discharge valve CL058Open No.3 centre COT suction valve CL014Open Port slop tank inlet valve CL272The ODME will regulate the automatic operation of the discharge line valves to either the port slop tank CL122 or directly overboard, CL121. d) Start No.2 MCP, maintain the pump at minimum speed and observe the overboard discharge.e) Slowly increase the pump speed to full flow for the bulk discharge.f) As the COT sounding nears the bottom, reduce the pump speed and maintain a good overside watch.g) If the MCP discharge is not stopped by the ODME, stop No.2 COP and use the stripping pump to drain No.3 centre and cargo lines to the port slop tank.

In order to achieve this it is necessary to flush all pumps and lines with sea water, ensuring that all lines have been washed and subsequently gas freed on completion.There follows an example of a line washing sequence in preparation for inspection and repairs.Line Washing SequenceIt is important to ensure that all tanks and lines are well stripped ashore on completion of discharge. All COW machines shall be opened and the COW line allowed to drain into the cargo tanks. (Note: The slop tanks should be filled to around the 50% level during the line washing. If the slop tanks reach this level prior to completion of flushing the system should be changed over to take suction from the slop tank on recirculation, closing the sea valve.)(Note: Ensure all manifold pipe ends are tightly blanked.)a) Drain the manifold top lines into No.3 wing tanks.Position Description ValveOpen Manifold valves CL098, CL099, CL100, CL101 CL102, CL103, CL104, CL105Open Manifold drain valves CL141, CL142, CL143, CL144 CL145, CL146, CL147, CL148 CL149, CL150, CL151, CL152 CL153, CL154, CL155, CL156Open Drain to No.3 starboard tank CL157, CL158Open Drain to No.3 port tank CL160, CL159Open Manifold vacuum breakers CL199, CL264Open Manifold crossover valves CL112, CL113 CL114, CL115 CL116, CL117b) Drain the bottom lines into the slop tanks.Position Description ValveOpen Bulkhead valves CL050, CL051, CL052Open Eductor suction valves to bottom lines CL072, CL073 CL074, CL075 CL076, CL07Open Slop tank direct suction valves CL055, CL056Open Bottom line crossover valves CL001, CL002 CL003, CL004 CL005, CL006c) Drain the cargo top lines via drops into the slop tanks.Open Drops to No.1, 2 and 3 bottom lines CL106, CL107 CL108Open Main line block valves CL109, CL110 CL111d) Close ALL valves on the system on completion of draining.2.7/2.7.2 Page 2 of 14N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftPTHPICI PTPIPTPTPT CIPIPIPTPTHHHHHSeaChestHHHKeyTC HeaterHHHCI PTPIPTHHCI PTPIPTHCI PTPIPTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H HH HH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHH H HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHAAAHHHHHHHHH H H HH H H HHHCL067VCL066VCL250VCL192VCL198VCL106VCL107VCL108VCL195VIllustration 2.7.2b Line Cleaning No.3 Main Cargo PumpCL057VSteam and AirCondensateNo.1No.2No.3Cargo Oil Pumps(5,500m3/h x150mth)Tank Cleaning Pump (3,000m3/h x150mth)Cargo Oil Stripping Pump (450m3/h x150mth)8k Air8k AirFromWater BallastSystemSampling PointPipe TrunkCL068VCL184VCL177VCL163VCL183VCL178VCL164VCL182VCL179VCL165VCL181VCL140VCL133VCL138VCL131VCL139VCL132VCL123VCL251VCL122VCL134VTo Tank Cleaning MainCL096VBilgeSuction(Aft)BilgeSuction(Fwd)BilgeSuction(VoidSpace)Cargo Oil Stripping LineNo.1 Cargo Main LineNo.2 Cargo Main LineNo.3 Cargo Main LineCL097VCL270VCL256VFromVacuumSystem FromFire LineFromInert GasMainCL180VCL166VCL059VCL065VCL064VCL069VCL063VCL062VCL060VCL061VCL087VCL120VCL095VCL071VCL076VCL077VCL074VCL075VCL072VCL073VCL119VCL086VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL091VCL090VCL093VCL092VCL124VCL054VCL252VCL055VCL272VCL277VCL050VCL053VCL253VCL109VCL110VCL111V CL116V CL117VCL147VCL101VCL148VCL112V CL113VCL114V CL115VCL121VCL051VCL071VCL052VCL056VCL125VCL126VCL127VCL130V CL082VCL254VCL136VCL137VCL161VCL168VCL078VCL084VCL058VCL269VCL128VCL129VCL267VCL201VCL200VNo.1No.2Cargo OilStrippingEductors(700m3/h)Pump Room BilgeStripping Eductors(10m3/h)CL083VCL080VCL079VCL081VCL094VCL135VCL255VCL206VCL213VCL225VCL160VCL159VCL158VCL212VCL226VCL211VCL227VCL210VCL228VCL145VCL100VCL146VCL207VCL143VCL099VCL144VCL208VCL141VCL098VCL142VCL209VCL149VCL009VCL030VCL007VCL001VCL011VCL017VCL020VCL191VCL262VCL002VCL028VCL006VCL005VCL004VCL003VCL042VCL041VCL043VCL044VCL045VCL040VCL027VCL046VCL026VCL014VCL047VCL025VCL048VCL024VCL049VCL039VCL008VCL029VCL010VCL031VCL012VCL032VCL015VCL034VCL018VCL036VCL021VCL038VCL261V CL260V CL259VCL013VCL033VCL016VCL035VCL019VCL037VCL022VCL263VCL023VCL102VCL150VCL205VCL214VCL224VCL157VCL215VCL223VCL216VCL222VCL217VCL221VCL151VCL103VCL152VCL204VCL153VCL104VCL154VCL203VCL155VCL105VCL156VCL202VCL268VCL197VCL194VNo.5Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.3Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.5Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.4Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.1CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.4CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.5Cargo OilTank(Centre)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.4 Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo Oil Tank(Stb'd)Slop Tank(Port)Slop Tank(Stb'd)Sea WaterNo.5 StarboardWater BallastTankNo.4 COTPort WingNo.4 COTStarboard WingNo.3 COTPort WingCL199VCL264VHCL286VCL070V2.7/2.7.2 Page 3 of 14N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftProcedure to Line Wash with No.3 MCPa) Line up the stripping pump on the main sea suction line to ensure that the line is stripped dry of any residual crude oil.

SeresModel: S663 Mk lllProcedures for ballast handling and line washing are in compliance with regulations in accordance with resolution A 586(XIV) and MEPC 51(32) amending the discharge criteria of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78 I.E.Line draining shall be carried out in accordance with the procedures detailed in the approved Crude Oil Washing Operation and Equipment Manual prior to any discharge of extraordinary dirty ballast, oil contaminated water and slops. Regulation 15(3)(a) of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78 specifies that the approved oil discharge monitoring and control system shall be in operation when there is any discharge of oil contaminated water into the sea. For this vessel, this means all extraordinary dirty ballast water. Line flushing and tank washing water from the cargo spaces must be monitored using the high overboard discharge.The discharge monitoring of clean ballast is not required by Annex I of MARPOL 73/78, providing such ballast was contained in a tank previously the subject of tank washing after the carriage of oil. The ballast discharge must not produce visible traces of oil or sludge on the surface of clean, calm water. It is recommended however, that all such extraordinary clean ballast discharges are monitored in order that determinative evidence can be gained that the oil content of such discharges does not exceed 15ppm, notwithstanding the absence of visible traces.The discharge monitoring of segregated ballast is not required by Annex I of MARPOL 73/78. Such ballast should be subject of a surface examination prior to discharge.Prior to any discharge overboard, the oil monitoring and control system shall undergo pre-start checks and the input of data variables. The system will remain fully operational during all phases of discharge and the printed record confirming time and data will be retained on board for a period of at least three years.All ballast and effluent discharge operations shall be clearly recorded in the Oil Record Book Part II which is placed on board in accordance with Regulation 20 of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78. It is recommended that the ODME printout is attached to the corresponding entries and be made available for Port State Inspection when required.Subject to charter party agreement, oil contaminated water, and slops may be discharged to a shore reception facility at the loading port. Monitoring of discharges in this case are not required.Prior to the discharge of ballast and oil contaminated water the cargo officer shall use the portable cargo monitoring/interface detector, in accordance with manufacturers instructions, to determine the position of the oil/water interface and shall record the resultant measurement prior to the commencement of a monitored discharge.It should be ensured that all valves not required for the particular operation being undertaken, are kept in a fully closed position.Procedure for Line Flushing of Oil Discharge Monitoring SystemA supply of fresh water for system flushing is connected to the three-way zero water pneumatic valve through a non-return valve from a 100 litre header tank.During the flushing cycle, the sampling pump takes suction from this tank and, through the two-way circulation stop valve, passes clean water through the measuring vessel before returning to the flow detector and three-way back flush valve where it is routed to the sampling probe. Fresh water make-up is made from the permanently installed water supply line, consumption being approximately 80 litres for each flushing cycle.Oil Monitoring and Control SystemIntroductionThe oil discharge monitoring and control system is installed on this vessel to provide the control of overboard discharge by measuring oil outflow concentration. It also computes the rate of discharge and total quantity of oil discharged per ballast voyage.The system fitted to this vessel consists of the following main elements: Sampling system Monitoring system Control systemThe descriptions of these main elements are detailed in the following sections.Sampling SystemThe major components required for the sampling of contaminated oil discharge are located in the hazardous area and consist of: A sampling pump and motor assembly located on the bulkhead between the pump room and engine room The oil content meter and measuring vessel penetration located above the sampling pump A control valve assembly (hydraulic panoply) Referring to illustration 2.7.3a, a single sample probe is provided in the ODME system. This is located on the side of the horizontal 650mm piping section to the starboard high overboard discharge main line upstream of valves CL094 and CL096 and penetrates to a depth of one quarter of the diameter of the discharge pipe.During operation, the oil monitoring sample system extracts a sample from the probe which is routed through a local manually operated probe isolating valve to the control valve assembly (hydraulic panoply). The sample is drawn through a mesh filter to a three-way zero water pneumatic valve and a two-way circulation stop pneumatic valve before passing to the sample pump inlet.From the sample pump discharge, the sample is routed directly to the measuring vessel.The sample, after passing through the measuring vessel (analysis section), is returned to the hydraulic panoply. The sample passes through the in-line flow detector/indicator, a manually operated flow regulating valve and a three-way backflush pneumatic valve before being discharged to the port side slop tank.The air supply for the panoply mounted flow indicator/ detector is taken from the instrument air system and is regulated to 1.2 bar.Monitoring System - Engine RoomThe signal is derived from the analysis of the sample water being passed through the measuring vessel from the sampling pump. The measuring cell works on a principle of optical analysis whereby a laser diode, operating in the infrared wavelength and through a fibre optic cable, transmits a beam of light across the sample. Compensation for entrapped air and particle content is made by a compensation cell to avoid light transmission loss.Light scattered by the oil content is detected by the measuring cell and a scattering detector which discriminates any deflection from solids which might otherwise cause spurious alarms. The ratio of scattered light to compensated transmitted light is directly related to the oil concentration and this ratio is converted to an electrical signal for further processing by the oil content meter electronics.To ensure optical analysis, a pneumatic piston, fitted with a two wiper seal, automatically cleans the measuring vessel. The self-calibration system (zeroing) is operated automatically and controlled by the control unit according to the specific keyboard command.2.7/2.7.3 Page 2 of 7N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftControl Unit - Cargo Control RoomThe control unit provides the means of total supervision of the monitoring and sampling system and performs the function of a computer and recording device in respect of allowable discharge operations.The digital visual display unit shows the data for any current discharge situation and gives instantaneous alarm indication.A thermal printer is incorporated within the cabinet to provide data required in compliance with IMO Resolution A.586(XIV).Access to data input, operating mode etc, is through the 16 pushbutton keyboard located on the unit. Control Unit - Alarms, Controls and VDU DisplaysIntroductionThe control unit has a users access code, which must be entered prior to the changing of input data.Control Unit Panel Facilities VDU intensity control Mains supply indicator Alarm indicator/acknowledge pushbutton Auto/manual keyswitch Keyboard Visual display unit Thermal printerAlarms and VDU DisplaysIn case of an alarm condition the (red) alarm indicator will illuminate together with an audible alarm from the control unit.Pressing the alarm indicator pushbutton will acknowledge the specific alarm condition and cancel the audible alarm. The alarm indicator lamp will stay lit until the fault is rectified.Any message currently displayed on the VDU will be accompanied by a new message at the bottom of the screen, detailing which alarm parameter has occurred and (where applicable) the rectification procedure that should be followed. This can be displayed upon demand.The alarms (programmed and non-programmed) incorporated within the control unit microprocessor include the following: 30 litres/nautical mile exceeded Discharge valve incorrectly open Total oil limit exceed 15ppm exceeded 100ppm passed 999ppm range exceeded Discharge flow under minimum range Discharge flow range exceeded Flow meter failure Ships speed too high > 20 knots Ships speed too low Water failure Motor pump wrongly powered Calibration failure Oil content meter failure Printer paper failureAutomatic and Manual InputAutomatic InputsConcentration of oil in parts per million (ppm) as a real value derived from the installed oil content meter.Time (based on GMT) and date, are pre-programmed until the year 2020. Memory is maintained for a maximum of three months by a rechargeable battery back-up regardless of mains disconnection.Effluent outflow rate is obtained from the installed flow meter system.The ships speed through the water, obtained from the ships speed log.Manual InputsManual inputs are not normally required except for the verification of the sample channel and the selection of total oil reset, total oil limit and ship situation data. Outputs RecordedIntroductionThe outputs from the control unit are recorded by the thermal printer. Each record must be retained for at least three years.The printer will be provide a listing every 10 minutes during operation and will provide immediate and additional listings such as: Each time the equipment is switched on Each time an alarm is raised Each time data is changed or revised Each time there is an increase of 10 litres/nautical mile in the quantity of oil being dischargedNotified OutputsThe printer will provide the following data according to the sampling mode: Date (Day/Month/Year) and time (24 hours GMT) Channel selected manually selected (No.l) State of discharge (permitted/prohibited) Position of discharge valve (open/closed) Flow rate input value Total oil limit in litres - manually input Power on/power off Monitoring Instantaneous rate of discharge of oil in litres/mile Total quantity of oil discharged Input value of oil content in ppm Ships speed input valueOther data is listed or displayed on the VDU, as appropriate, according to specific operating parameters or malfunctions, i.e. vessel under voyage etc.Starting InterlockThe Resolution A.586 (X1V) requirement for a starting interlock is satisfied by electrical control between the control unit and a relay based on interlock circuits contained in the cargo valve console.2.7/2.7.3 Page 3 of 7N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo System Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftDischarge Valve ControlFully automatic discharge valve control is arranged in compliance with paragraph 3.3 of Res. A.586 (X1V) by the mutual operation of overboard valve CL058 and slop tank return valve CL122.Flow Rate Indicating SystemThe ODME control unit is provided with an automatic input rate of effluent discharge from the 650mm discharge line leading to the port high overboard valve.The flow rate indicating system consists of a probe located in the horizontal section of the upstream discharge line of the ODME sampling probe. Linked to the probe is a DP transmitter. The low pressure and high pressure impulse lines from the probe are connected to the transmitter mounting valve block.Ships Speed Indicating SystemThe system consists of a electromagnetic speed log, a transmitted signal of which is cabled directly to the ODME control unit. Discharge of Ballast and Contaminated WaterEnsure that line flushing has been completed prior to discharging any ballast or oil contaminated water. All valves not being used for the discharge are to be kept shut.Pre-Operational Checks for Oil Discharge Monitoring and Control SystemPrior to setting the oil discharge monitoring and control system, and prior to the commencement of a ballast or oil contaminated water discharge, the following checks must carried out:Engine Room Ensure that the 440V supply is available to the sample pump motor starter. Check that the 220V mains supply switch in the oil content meter cabinet is ON. Ensure that the air supply to oil content meter is available.Pump Room Ensure that an adequate air supply is available to the monitoring system. Check and adjust the regulator serving the hydraulic panoply mounted flow detector to 1.2 bar. Open the fresh water flushing/calibration shut-off valve from the header tank and ensure the tank is full to operating level. The level of the header tank is automatically controlled by a topping up ball cock. Check all drains valves in the monitoring system are closed.(Note: Do not touch the hydraulic panoply flow regulating valve unless absolutely necessary. The valve is preset during commissioning to give a sample flow of between 700 and 750 litres/hour through the ODME system.) Open the sample probe isolating valve.On Deck Take oil/water interface readings of the heavy weather ballast tank(s) and/or of tank washings contained in the slop tanks by using the MMC detector.Cargo Control Room Ensure that 220V power is available to the ODME control unit.

Press key 0 to reset the TOTAL OIL LIMIT to zero.(Note: Do not reset the Total Oil Limit if the effluent discharge is subsequent to an earlier discharge during the same ballast voyage.)Entering the Total Oil Limit DataThis calculated value corresponds to the total quantity of oil that may be discharged into the sea during the ballast voyage.For this vessel, the total quantity of oil discharged into sea during successive discharge operations in limited to 1/30,000 of the total quantity of the particular cargo of which the residue formed a part. For example, to establish TOTAL OIL LIMIT, assume homogeneous cargo of 38,000 tonnes oil (S.G. 0.85) was carried on the previous loaded voyage. Total oil limit may be calculated as follows: 38,000 divided by 30,000= 1.267 tonnesConvert this figure to m3 by dividing by the SG, and convert this result to litres by multiplying by 1,000. e.g. 1.267 0.85 x 1000 = 1490 litres. Enter this value using the keyboard.Press key 8 and after display of the TOTAL OIL LIMIT page, and enter the data in litres.(Note: THE TOTAL OIL LIMIT reset facility, detailed above, is to be used only if the SHIP SITUATION data is required to change or the oil residues remaining from the previous loaded voyage have been properly discharged.)Where an oil contaminated deballasting or effluent discharge operation has been staged, suspended or interrupted during a specific ballast voyage then the record of the TOTAL OIL LIMIT must be left unchanged pending completion of the ballast passage.Inboard Transfera) Press key 0 and after display of the INBOARD TRANSFER page, a list of options available appears on the VDU screen.Choose the option required and type B.

No reference is indicated to the position of the percentage opening/closed valves.3.1.3 CONTROL OF VALVES AND PUMPSControl of the hydraulic cargo and ballast system valves and pumps is from the Super Cargo - XL integrated computerised cargo control system. After a loading/discharging plan has been formulated and tested in the simulation programme the SC-XL, when given the command to execute a plan, will automatically control the operations of the cargo and ballast system valves and pumps according to the pre-defined plan.The following valves are of the intermediate type, operated between 0 to 100%. Cargo oil tank main suctions Cargo oil tank stripping suctions Cargo oil pump discharge valves Ballast tank main suction valves Ballast tank stripping suction valves Ballast pump discharge valves Tank cleaning pump discharge valvesEach remote control valve of the intermediate control type has a slider bar which is used to move the valve to the required position when the manual option is selected. The slider bar cannot be used when the valve selection is in automatic control. When a valve is closed the colour of the valve is white. When an intermediate valve is selected on screen, the valve number colour will become inverted. The valve will blink the cargo line colour when it is moving and the feed back indicator for the valve will move to the new position. The valve will become a steady cargo line colour when it has reached its required position.When an open/closed type valve is selected on screen its valve number colour will become inverted. When the valve is in motion it will blink the cargo line colour until it reaches its fully open position, then it will change to the solid cargo line colour. When the valve is closed it will be shown in white.The hydraulic pump unit which operates the remote control cargo and ballast valves is located in the hydraulic pump room on upper deck. The pumps are controlled from the SC-XL screen display either from the EQUIPMENT menu then page down to bring up the HYD.OIL PUMP window, or from the sub-menu OPERATION tab at the right of the screen, then selecting the HYD.OIL PUMP button. To start a pump select the START button on the required pump, if the equipment menu has been selected to open the hydraulic pump unit operation window a safety message No.? Hyd. Oil Pump Start OK is displayed, this message is not given if the window was opened through the sub-menu. When a pump is set to RUN, the other pump will automatically become the standby pump. The standby pump will cut in automatically in the event of low oil pressure. An alarm is indicated when the standby pump cuts in.Indicator lamps on the cargo control console show the start/stop condition of each hydraulic pump, plus an indication of a common alarm fault on the system.The steam turbine driven pumps are made ready for operation in the engine room before control is passed over to the SC-XL. The SC-XL control system then controls the speed of the pumps automatically according to the discharging plan.The cargo oil stripping pump is steam driven, control of its speed setting is from the SC-XL screen display.3.1/3.1.2/3 Page 1 of 3N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 3.1.2a Cargo Mimic PanelNo.3 Cargo LineSLOP (P) 5TK (P) 4TK (P) 3TK (P) 2TK (P) 1TK (P)SLOP (P) 5TK (S) 4TK (S) 3TK (S) 2TK (S) 1TK (S)5TK (C) 4TK (C) 3TK (C) 2TK (C) 1TK (C)F.P.TKNo.2 Cargo LineNo.1 Cargo LineCL095VCL092VCL093VCL087VCL120VCL090VCL091VCL086VCL119VCL125VCL124VCL118VCL085VCL089VCL088VCL164V CL178V CL183VCL165V CL179V CL182VNO.2COPCL163V CL177V CL184VCL057VCL066VCL064VCL060VCL065VCL062VCL071VCL094VCL254V CL136V CL137VCL081VCL121VCL138V CL131VCL139V CL132VCL140V CL133VCL109VCL110VCL111VCL108V CL107VCL106VCL058V CL201VTONO.3S.C.O.T.

The system is designed to optimise cargo operations while taking into account ship stresses and limitations of the loading/unloading terminal. Planning and execution of the loading/unloading and ballasting operations are undertaken by the SC-XL which can be set for full automatic operation with guidance control.Initially, a cargo plan must be set up by the operator which the SC-XL will subsequently follow for the cargo operation. In this plan all parameters are entered that the SC-XL must take into account. After a plan has been set up, the operator can then set the plan as a simulation, the SC-XL software will then verify that the plan is correct or it will indicate any modifications that should be made.To Construct a Loading PlanFrom the main menu screen display select LOADING PLAN, the loading plan screen will now open. In the plan name box enter the name of the plan which should be unique, then press ENTER. Press the INITIAL CONDITIONS DATA SET button, this will open the initial conditions data set window. Press the ON-LINE DATA RETRIEVE button to update the current levels in the cargo, ballast FO/DO, LO and fresh water tanks. Press OK if these figures are correct. The total sum of the loading quantity is now displayed. On returning to the loading plan screen, under the port code area, select the arrow button to open the port code information drop down box, enter the name of the port code. The port data window will show the limitations for this port, ie. draught limits, air draught limit, maximum and minimum manifold pressure, maximum shore capacity flow rate, SG of the sea water at that area, maximum displacement allowed and the piping loss factor. These figures will have already been set during the initial port information set up. If it is required to modify some of this data, then this modification will only apply to this plan and not the original record of the port data. If all of the details are correct for this plan select OK. On returning to the loading plan, select the arrow button in the cargo data area for this selected port. A drop down box will appear where the cargo data can be entered. Check and modify the cargo data as required, modification of the data is only applicable to this plan and does not affect the original information held about each cargo type. When the information is correct select OK.Enter the quantity of cargo to be loaded against each cargo grade and the tolerance ratio for each grade.The loading condition for the FO/DO and miscellaneous tanks should be entered for the loading phases via the OTHER TANKS CONDITION buttons on the loading plan window.Under the deadweight heading enter the maximum load line marks that should be used, considering the sea areas to be transitted between the last load port and first discharge port.If commingle grades are to be carried, this data can be entered under the OTHER DATA heading. Select the SET COMMINGLE OF CARGO OIL data button and enter the commingle data in the respective cargo grade boxes. Under the SET CARGO TANK GRADES box, the operator can select the cargo grades either for automatic selection by the SC-XL software when the plan is run, or specifically select cargo grades for individual tanks.It is necessary to determine whether the aft peak and engine room ballast tanks should be considered during the formulation of the plan, ie. if these tanks can or cannot be used for ballast/deballasting. From the APT & E/R SWBT OPERATION area, select either PROHIBITED or OK. If OK is selected, the plan will be formulated for the inclusion of these tanks in its calculations.It is necessary to instruct the SC-XL whether cargo tank groupings are to be considered. This information is relayed via the TANK DISTRIBUTION heading box. If the NO LIMITATION is selected, then the cargo tank groupings will be ignored during the formulation of the plan. Selecting TANK GROUP indicates that the SC-XL must consider the tank groups in formulating the plan.When all of the information has been entered, press the AUTOMATIC TANK PLAN EXECUTE button on the loading plan window.The SC-XL software will now calculate the plan, a PLANNING NOW window will be displayed. On completion of the calculations, LOADING PLAN (2/4) will automatically be displayed. Up to ten plans can be displayed. If the software has produced more than one plan for consideration, then these can be presented by using the UP/DOWN buttons.The screen will show the planned loading quantity for each grade, commingle data if applicable. The evolution result indicates if the plan is acceptable for hull strength, draught, trim and loading quauntity. If the evolution value is below 100% then it should be considered to change some of the entered data for the plan and then resubmit.The screen will also show the cargo load value that can be accepted.The graphical image at the bottom of the screen shows the loading condition for each phase.The screen LOADING PLAN (3/4) shows a tabular view of the port information, cargo grade to be loaded, draught before and after loading, trim/heel conditions before and after loading, hull stresses before and after loading, grade for each tank and the loading quantity for each tank before and after loading.The screen LOADING PLAN (4/4) shows a tabular view of the port information, cargo grade to be loaded and the loading quantity of ballast water before and after the loading operation.If it is necessary to modify a plan, select the best plan then on screen LOADING PLAN (2/4) press the TANK LOADING VOLUME ADJUST button.

When all of the necessary data has been entered into the module, a simulation will be conducted to ensure that the ships hull stresses and stability condition stays within safe limits at all times. As a ballast exchange simulation is initiated, the ballast exchange trend screen will appear and from this screen the operator can view the change in the ballast condition in relation to tank contents, hull stresses, changes in draught and trim and the pumping rate of the ballast pumps.When the simulation has been run and shows that the ships condition and operating parameters are proven to be satisfactory, then the simulation can be saved as a unique plan. During the execution of the plan, the operator can use the guidance message list which is the normal mode of operation when the ballast exchange system is working in automatic operation, or the Self-Execution mode, in which the operation will continue without having to receive an operators Exceute/Hold command. Procedure to Execute an Automatic Ballast Water Exchange When it is necessary to carry out a ballast water exchange, all the required data for a simulation and subsequent plan to be drawn up will be entered via the Ballast Exchange Plan screen, the screen image is indicated above on the left hand side. For each step of the plan the target data must be inserted, these are the reference points the system will work to during the deballasting and ballasting operation, the units can either be specified as ullage or m3 capacity. The tank capacity data for all of the remaining tanks must also be updated, either manually or by pressing the On-Line Data Retrieve button for each group of tanks. The green button below each total column for each step is used to confirm the ballast piping plan that will be used for each phase of the operation. When it is confirmed that the piping plan is correct, the OK button must be pressed. When all of the reference data has been entered, the operator must process this information through a simulation. This is carried out by selecting the Ballast Exchange Control from the main menu, its image is indicated in the illustration above on the right hand side. The simulation is normally started with step No.1, although, using the selection box on the top left of the screen a different starting point step No. can be made. When the operator is assured that the data entry is correct the Simulation Execute button should be pressed, a confirm button message will now be displayed, press Yes to begin the simulation.When the simulation is initiated the Ballast Exchange Trend screen will appear. This new screen display will allow the operator to view the change of ballast level in each tank, additionally, the draught and trim changes, hull stresses, the rate of ballast exchange and the pump running condition can be viewed for the entire simulation. When the simulation is complete, the operator can chose to accept the simulation if all of the criteria are within acceptable limits, or run it again if it is necessary to make some adjustments either to the tank target levels, or to transfer liquid between the fuel oil bunker tanks for example. When the simulation has been saved to the hard drive it can be called up when the ballast exchange takes place. Although the simulation can take into account the overall constraints on the ship, i.e., hull stress, stability, draught and trim changes etc., it cannot take into account or make allowances for the weather and sea conditions. Therefore, before the automatic ballast exchange plan is set into operation the operator must take into account the fact that the plan may require to be terminated at some stage of the process. If the plan is terminated part of the way through, then when it is restarted the operator can choose the step start point from the drop down box at the top left hand corner of the screen.With the correct ballast exchange plan activated, which will be displayed on the ballast exchange control screen, the operator should check that the target data for each ballast tank is correct. If any changes have to be made, then after the modifications have been implemented another simulation must be carried out.The chief officer who will have run the simulation, must decide if the plan is to be run under the guidance control mode or self-execution mode. In guidance control mode, the system will wait for a positive action from the operator before the next step in the process can take place. In the self-execution mode, the guidance information will be displayed but the operation will continue without any necessary input from the operator.When the preparations for the ballast pumps have been carried out by the duty engineer, the operator in charge of ballast exchange will initiate the plan by pressing the EXECUTE button, followed by OK. The ballast exchange will now be carried out in accordance with the previous simulation exercise.It is possible that the sea state or weather conditions might make the judgement by the Super Cargo - XL program difficult to correctlyassess the stripping phase of the tanks due to movement of the ship. If this is the case, then the operator can intervene by setting the finish stripping of each tank manually. To carry out this function select the OPERATION tab at the right hand side of the screen followed by Data Set for Ball. Auto. Control, this will open up a ballast exchange control sub-menu as indicated in the following column. From this sub-menu select the correct tank which is at the stripping stage then select the corresponding FINISH button. A confirmation window will now open, select OK to carry out the end of stripping process on that tank.To Interrupt or Terminate the Automatic Running of a Ballast Exchange PlanIf it is necessary to interrupt the plan which is in progress, then it is simply a case of the operator pressing the interrupt button at the top of the ballast exchange control page. A safety message will appear when the interrupt button is pressed to confirm the action. The interrupt action will transfer the process out of automatic mode and into manual mode, all of the valves and pumps will stay as they are unless the operator manually makes any changes, e.g., stopping pumps, opening or closing valves, i.e., possibly setting the system into recirculation etc., in order that no overall changes take place to the tank contents. During this period of interruption the historical trending will continue to be displayed.To restart the plan after an interruption, the operator should first ensure that the pumps all of the valves are set to their original condition and positions before the interruption took place. When this has been carried out the operator can select the INTERRUPT button again, this will bring up a Restart confirm action dialogue box. After confirmation, the system will return to the automatic operation of the plan at the point it was interrupted.To terminate the plan the operator must press the TERMINATE button at the top of the page, a safety message will ask to confirm the action. If the plan is terminated the pumps and valves are set into manual mode, the pumps and valves would then be shut down manually, the historical trend recording will also stop.Ballast Exchange Control XF.P.TK1WBT (P)1WBT (S)2WBT (P)2WBT (S)3WBT (P)3WBT (S)4WBT (P)4WBT (S)5WBT (P)5WBT (S)OBS.SOUND.OBS.SOUND.CORR.SOUND.CORR.SOUND.HANDLINGFINISH SETHANDLINGFINISH SETFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishFinishOBS.SOUND.TANK NAMETANK NAMETANK NAMETANK NAMEOBS.SOUND.CORR.SOUND.CORR.SOUND.STRIPP.FINISH SETSTRIPP.FINISH SETTRIM(m) HEEL(deg.)A.P.TKHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxHH xx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxHH xx.xx xx.xxA xx.x P xx.xIllustration 3.1.5b Ballast Exchange Control Sub-Menu3.1/3.1.5 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANY3.2 Cargo Control Room, Console and Panels Illustrations3.2a Cargo Control Room3.2b Cargo Control Console3.2c Cargo Control Room PanelsIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 3.2a Cargo Control RoomCargo Control RoomKey1 - Cargo Control Console2 - Sounding Board3 - Omicron Panel for Gas Detection and Overfill Alarms4 - Inert Gas Sub Panel5 - Saab TankRadar Control Panel6 - ODME Control Unit7 - Super Cargo XL Display8 - Printer9 - Saab TankRadar Display and Computer10 - LAN PC and Printer13 245677910 888NO.2BPBA357VBA358VBA338VBA328VBA342VBA339VBA343VBA329VBA331VBA330VBA326VBA364VBA327VBA363VBA311VBA312VTOC.O.SYSTEMSPOOLPIECESPOOLPIECEFROMI.GMAINLINE5TK(P)5TK(S)4TK(P)4TK(S)3TK(P)3TK(S)2TK(P)2TK(S)1TK(P)F.P.TK1TK(S)BA323VBA334VBA335VBA325VBA324VBA333VBA336VBA345VNO.2NO.1BA337VBA344VBA332VBA340VBA321VBA309VBA319VBA307VBA317VBA305VBA315VBA303VBA313VBA301VBA322VBA310VBA320VBA308VBA318VBA306VBA316VBA304VBA314VBA302VBA362VBA361VBA356VBA341VBA360VBA359VNO.1BPSCTo Ship's Office5kg CO2 FireExtinguisher3.2 Page 1 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft3.2 CARGO CONTROL ROOM, CONSOLE AND PANELSThe cargo control room (CCR) is located on A deck in the accommodation block.

The information gathered by the system is used to display the cargo oil tank levels, temperatures in the cargo oil tanks at three different levels, top, mid and bottom areas, ballast tank levels, density of the fluids in the segregated ballast tanks and miscellaneous tanks in the engine room. The engine room tanks which come under the Miscellaneous heading are also displayed on the screens. The system recieves an input from the pressure monitoring system in the cargo oil tanks which it displays on the Cargo Overview screen.The radar transmitters fitted on the top of the cargo oil tanks emit microwaves, directed by an antenna, towards the surface of the tank contents, the antenna then picks up the echo from the surface. The difference in frequency between the transmitted and reflected signal is directly proportional to the measured distance i.e. ullage.The Saab TankRadar system, which is the main part of the cargo tank control system, is made up of the following units: Workstation and monitor Monitor slave display on cargo console Level unit TransmittersWorkstation The workstation and slave display located in the CCR is used by the operator for monitoring the tank ullage, temperatures, inert gas pressures and all the other data that is handled by the Saab TankRadar. The workstation takes care of the alarm handling of the measured values. It also communicates with other systems, such as load calculators and electric-pneumatic level gauging systems (such as ballast) and supervises the transmitter and level unit computers.Level Unit The level unit located in the CCR contains terminals for the intrinsically safe connection of the transmitters. It contains the electronics used for processing the signals from the transmitters for calculating the tank parameters, such as a trim/list corrected ullage, average cargo temperature and for communicating with the workstation. The system automatically measures the ullage more frequently on cargo tanks that are either being loaded or discharged.TransmittersThe transmitters measure the distance to the product surface, using a continuous radar signal, and have an electronic box that generates and processes the radar signal. The transmitters are of the standard type with a high performance parabolic antenna.Workstation The workstation is operated with a light pen, which the operator points directly on the screen to activate various functions. The display works under the Windows environment. Different windows can be opened up and displayed simultaneously. The windows can be moved on the screen by pointing at the top, on the title bar, of the window and dragging them to a new position. All the windows have a BACK button, which places the window behind the other windows and an EXIT button, which closes the window.The overview window is the main window to work from, as it shows the layout of the tanks of the vessel. If the overview window is not displayed touch the CLOSE ALL button or the OVERVIEW button. Touch a tank area on the mimic figure to open the tank data window, which displays the basic information on one tank. When loading or discharging, the tank data windows of all the active tanks can be opened and placed beside each other.To display the channel menu touch a value (for example an ullage value). Select one of the items on the menu or touch outside the menu to close it. The tank set up window shows more information on one tank than the tank data window. OperationLight Pena) Move the pen to the area on the screen to be activated or selected. b) Hold the light pen close to the screen and move the cursor to the area to be activated, press the tip of the light pen against the surface of the screen. The pen registers a hit and activates the function of the area where the cursor was positioned.c) If the light pen (or mouse) should fail, it is possible to move the cursor with the arrow keys on the keyboard. d) Press an arrow key once to move it just slightly, or keep it pressed to move the cursor quickly. e) To activate a function, once the cursor is correctly positioned, press the control key and the return key at the same time, this corresponds to a hit by the light pen.The Base WindowThe base window is always at the background of the screen.At the top of the window there is row with the TankRadar name, the date and time, the HELP button and an CLOSE ALL button. By pressing the HELP button the help texts can be read about the various parts of the software. Clear the screen by pressing the CLOSE ALL button. All the windows that are open on the screen are closed down and the overview window is opened.Below the top row there is the row of buttons, of which the first button is always the WINDOW button. The other buttons can be as follows (depending on system configuration): OVERVIEW SET UP GROUP TREND ALARMThese buttons are used to open the corresponding windows. However, both the WINDOW button and the SETUP button are MENU buttons, which means they open up menus from which a selection can be made. Alarm RowAt the bottom of the screen there is an alarm row.

The information in the overview window will change for different ships.Each tank is shown with its tank name and ullage. An arrow indicating the level rate may be displayed below the value of the ullage. When it points down it indicates that the tank is being discharged and conversely it points up when the tank is being loaded.There can also be fixed areas on the overview window with information on, for example, draught, sea water density, trim and list.Below the mimic of the ship there can be buttons for viewing predefined tank groups. One of these buttons could be configured to show for example, the tanks in the aft end of the ship, and another, the tanks at the middle part of the ship.By pressing a tank area, the tank data window for that tank is opened. If the ullage value is pressed, the channel menu is opened.Tank Data WindowThe Tank Data window is a small window displaying basic data of one tank for each window. The ullage for a cargo or a slop tank is shown in a numeric form below the bar graph. In the bar graph, the ullage is indicated by the empty space above the coloured bar in the bar graph. For ballast and miscellaneous tanks the level is also shown in numeric form in the bar graph. Open the tank data window by pressing the area of the tank in the overview window. The tank data window for that specific tank will open. If the value of the ullage in the overview window is hit, the channel menu will be displayed instead.A number of tank data windows can be opened (a maximum of 20 windows can be displayed at one time) and placed wherever required on the screen. Touch the title bar and move the pen. It is possible to switch to a new tank in a window by pressing the TANK button and selecting a new tank from the list.An arrow pointing down beside the bar graph indicates that the tank is being discharged, and conversely if the arrow points up the tank is being loaded.The alarm limits are shown as lines beside the bar graph. The shorter lines indicate the high and low limits, while the longer lines indicate the high high and low low limits. The values in the window that are underlined can be changed.Channel Data WindowThe Channel Data window looks similar to the tank data window. The channel data window is used to get a quick overview of the data of a single channel. A new channel can be selected directly from this window by pressing the CHANNEL button.Tank Set-Up WindowThe Tank Set-Up window will give all the data on one tank. Alarm limits and other data can be changed from this window. It is also possible to block individual channels from this window by pressing the check boxes at the right end of the window.

As a guidance, the maximum and minimum of that range for the channel are printed in the window. Select the colour by pressing the box with the correct colour.(Note: Maximum and minimum ranges can be changed without losing the historical data of the trend. When any channel is added or deleted, the historical data for the other channels in that trend window is lost. To avoid losing historical data, make a new trend with the new channel or channels included or deleted. The original trend will still contain the historical data.)Changing the Sampling Period of a Trend(Note: All historical data of the trend will be lost when the sampling period is changed. To avoid this, make a new trend with the new sampling period. Press the SET UP button in the Trend window and press EDIT TREND on the menu. Enter a new sampling period in the Edit Trend window. Select OK to start the trend with the new sampling period.)Back-up Display on the Level UnitIf the workstation should fail, level indication can be obtained from the level unit.The back-up display is located in the calculation unit in the top part of the level unit cabinet. The back-up display serves only as a back-up for the workstation. The display can show each tank with its tank name and relevant tank values. The display can also show other information such as the setting of the trim/list mode, trim and list values, mode of the Processor Memory Board (LCM), communication parameters and versions of the software.As all the operations are normally done on the workstation, the back-up display is only needed when servicing the system or if there is a failure on the workstation.(Note: No alarm handling on measured values (except for the IG pressure alarm) is done in the level unit. All such alarm handling is done in the workstation.)3.3/3.3.1 Page 6 of 6Illustration 3.3.1c SAAB Temperature Monitor DisplayWindowHelpTrim A 2.35mList S 0.15CloseAllJan 08 08:59.44 2003CargoOverview Ballast MiscTksAlarm AcceptHi HFO2S Innage 17.47 ( 17.00) mDensity Sys.

This information is relayed to the Saab TankRadar display monitors.The draught gauge level transmitters are also of the electric-pneumatic type. The forward transmitter is fitted in the fore peak tank, the aft transmitter in the engine room and the midship transmitters (two) in No.4 port and starboard ballast tanks. The ballast and draught transmitter signals are linked into the Saab TankRadar system and can be monitored on the same display. The measuring line from all the electric-pneumatic type transmitters are led back to the cabinet transmitter boxes located in the hydraulic power pack room on upper deck. Here the pneumatic signal is converted to an electronic signal and passed to their respective displays in the engine and cargo control room. The ballast tanks are equipped with a high level alarm.Clean dry air supplied from the control air system is supplied to the LD 100S cabinets where it is regulated down to an operating pressure of 7 bar. Air is distributed to the individual tanks. The fuel oil and diesel oil tanks are fitted with a non-return valve in the transmitter line. The draught system lines are each fitted with a ship side isolating valve. The two domestic fresh water tanks are fitted with a pneumatic 1:1 converter.The output signals from the LD 100S cabinets are sent to the Saab monitoring system and the alarm and monitoring system.Operating PrincipleThe operating principle is based upon the measurement of the hydrostatic pressure at the bottom of the tank by the injection of air through a bubbling probe.The output pneumatic signal of the modulator is fed into a P/I converter where the pneumatic signal is converted to an electric signal which is connected to the display and digital indicator.Overfill Alarm SystemAn Omicron overfill level alarm is fitted to each cargo tank. It operates independently from the Saab TankRadar level measuring system.The level alarm sensor consists of a magnetic reed switch operated by a float. The sensor is mounted at the level equivalent to 98% capacity. The sensor will operate alarms in the cargo control room and on deck.3.3/3.3.2 Page 1 of 1N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft1. F.P.T. LOW 2.

The individual systems fulfil the following functions: The ballast tank gas detection system monitors for the presence of hydrocarbon explosive gases and also hydrogen sulphide gas in the ballast tanks. The system has 28 external sampling points and one internal point for sampling the atmosphere inside the cabinet itself. These sampling points are designated to cover the ballast tanks (two sample points per tank including two in the forward peak tank and two spare sample points) and include non-return valve terminations where appropriate. The pump room system monitors for hydrocarbon, hydrogen sulphide and oxygen content. The pump room has fourteen sample points for hydrocarbons, one sample point each for hydrogen sulphide and oxygen, and one internal point for sampling the atmosphere inside the cabinet itself. The entrance points into the accommodation at upper and A deck port and starboard have sampling detectors monitoring for hydrocarbons. The independent electronic overfill alarm system comprises of seventeen level sensors, one unit is located in each cargo and slop tank.The common alarm/control panel for these systems is located in a central cabinet in the CCR. The detector cabinets for the ballast tank, pump room and accommodation gas sampling/analysis systems are located in the hydraulic pump unit room on upper deck. The control cabinet for the overfill alarm system is situated in the CCR below the IG sub-control panel. All three of the gas sampling systems have remote repeater panels located on the bridge.Data from the gas detection and monitoring and overfill alarm system is fed to the Super Cargo - XL control and monitoring system, information is displayed on screen under the EQUIPMENT / OMICRON SYSTEM ALARM screen display, pages 1 and 2. Alarm set points and detection spans for the gas sampling systems are preset at the factory and are as follows:Ballast Tank System Hydrocarbon Detector Span 0-100% Low alarm 10% High alarm 30%Ballast Tank System Hydrogen Sulphide Detector Span 0-25ppm Low alarm 10ppm High alarm 15ppmPump Room System Hydrocarbon Detector Span 0-100% Alarm 10%Pump Room System Hydrogen Sulphide Detector Span 0-25ppm Alarm 10ppmPump Room System Oxygen Detector Span 0-25%/volume Alarm 19.5%/volumeAccommodation Hydrocarbon Detector Span 0-100% Alarm 10%The gas detection systems are automatic scanning and permanently installed. The gas detector elements are common for all sampling points on that system. A gas sample is taken from each sampling point in turn according to a pre-programmed sampling sequence. The sampling time for each point is individually adjustable, corresponding to the length of pipe to each particular sampling point.Test gas cylinders with a gas mixture of known composition can be connected to the systems for regular calibration/testing of the individual gas alarm instruments, as well as operational checks on the systems. It is important to only use calibration/test gas of an internationally recognised standard, and to follow the manufacturers instructions during any test/calibration procedure as damage to the equipment can occur.The Tnsberg Omicron gas detection and tank overfill alarm system consists of the following units:Common Alarm/Control PanelLocated in the CCR, this unit contains all five of the main alarm/control panels for all four systems. The ballast tank system has two separate alarm/contol panels for hydrocarbon and hydrogen sulphide respectively, arranged in a master/slave configuration. Each of the remaining systems has its one alarm/control panel at this location.The gas sampling alarm/control panels display the current status of the system, with individual LED/LCD displays for each sample point, measured value LCD read outs, system failure alarms and calibration/status control switches.The overfill alarm system has individual LED/LCD displays for each cargo and slop tank.Ballast Tank Detector CabinetLocated in the deck foam and fire control station on upper deck starboard side, this unit contains all the equipment to transport and complete the analysis of the individual gas test samples. It also has an internal gas sampling point to monitor for leakage inside the cabinet.Gas detection/analysis is carried out by an infrared hydrocarbon detection unit and an electro-chemical hydrogen sulphide detector.Pump Room and Accommodation Detector CabinetLocated in the deck foam and fire control station on upper deck starboard side, this unit contains all the equipment to transport and complete the analysis of the individual gas test samples. It also has an internal gas sampling point to monitor for leakage inside the cabinet. This cabinet also receives samples from the accommodation entrance areas on upper and A deck.Gas detection/analysis is carried out by a catalytic (Pellistor) hydrocarbon detector, an electro-chemical hydrogen sulphide detector and a galvanic lead-oxygen element oxygen detector.Electronic Tank Overfill Alarm CabinetThis unit is located in the CCR. It contains all the electronics/equipment necessary to operate this system, with inputs from the seventeen tank level sensors and from the alarm/control panel. All outputs are displayed on the alarm/control panel located in the common alarm/control panel.3.3/3.3.3 Page 2 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftALARM ACCEPTEDACCEPTALARMRESETALARM BUZZERLAMPTESTON/OFFVAPOUR ALARM SYSTEM, OVS OP 31OMICRONHIGH PRESSURELOW PRESSURESYSTEM FAILUREPRESSmbarVAPOURPRESSUREHIGH OXYGEN CONTFLOW FAILURESYSTEM FAILUREOXYGEN% VOLOXYGENMONITORINGHIGH HC GAS ALARMFLOW FAILURESYSTEM FAILURE% HCL.E.L.UNDER P/MTOP (STBD)HIGH HC GAS ALARMFLOW FAILURESYSTEM FAILURE% HCL.E.L.IN HULLDUCT (PORT)HIGH HC GAS ALARMFLOW FAILURESYSTEM FAILURE% HCL.E.L.IN HULLDUCT (STBD)HIGH GAS ALARMFLOW FAILURESYSTEM FAILURE% HCL.E.L.BESIDE OFSTRIP.

Located either side of the manifold area there is a electronic horn and light which will operate in the event of an overfill alarm being activated.Pipe SystemThe pipe system transports the test samples from sampling points to the respective analysing unit. The pipe system includes shut-off valves, non-return valves and flame traps, which are connected to the detector cabinet.It is important that the control/instrument air supply to the system is never isolated during the normal operation of the control units. The individual sampling line isolation valves must also remain open during normal sampling operations, these are located adjacent to the sampling unit.Special attention should be paid to the ballast tank sampling system. When individual ballast tanks are filled, both sample points in that tank must be disconnected at the control unit and the individual shut off valve for those points closed to prevent water entering the system. When a sample point is later reconnected after the ballast tank has been emptied, it is necessary to purge the sample lines to clear any obstructions or water from the line.Procedure to Disconnect a Sample Point i.e. When a Ballast Tank(s) is to be Filleda) The system is operating in the AUTOMATIC mode.b) Using the SAMPLE POINT SELECTOR switch on the master alarm/control panel located in the common alarm/control cabinet, move the current sample point to the desired sample point.c) Press the DIS/RECONNECT button. This button will illuminate with a blue light.d) The LCD display will show a message including the sample point's name and the message DISCONNECTED.e) When the automatic sequence restarts and moves away from this sample point, the LED will continue to flash slowly, indicating that it has been disconnected.f) Close the sample point shut off valve, located in the deck foam and fire control station on upper deck starboard side.Procedure to Purge then Reconnect a Sample Point i.e. When Ballast Tanks are Emptya) The system is operating in the AUTOMATIC mode.b) Open the desired sample valve.c) Using the SAMPLE POINT SELECTOR switch on the master alarm/control panel located in the common alarm/control cabinet, move the current sample point to the desired sample point.d) When the desired sample point has been selected, turn the AUTOMATIC/MANUAL/CALIBRATION selector switch to the MANUAL position and then turn the manual selector switch to the PURGE position. The purge will continue for as long as the selector switch is in this position.e) The LCD display will show the sample points name and the message MANUAL PURGING.f) After at least 30 seconds, return the selector switches to their original positions to complete the purge.g) While the correct sample point is still selected, press the DIS/RECONNECT button. The blue light inside this button will go out.h) When the automatic sequence restarts and moves away from this sample point, the LED will go dark, indicating that it has been reconnected and the normal sequence has been re-established.Each sample line that is reconnected must be purged individually.Procedure to Test the Cargo Tank Overfill AlarmsPrior to cargo operations the independent overfill alarms must be tested for each tank. Each level switch is fitted with a mechanical testing device, located under a screw cap on top of the level switchs junction box. By lifting the testing device slowly by approximately 10mm, the overfill alarm for that particular tank will be triggered.No alarm LEDs on the alarm panel should be lit. A green LED on the alarm unit is illuminated if the module is working properly. If the microprocessor inside the alarm module is defective, the green LED will flash. If the green LED does not illuminate there is a problem with the 24V DC supply or the internal 5V DC system.a) Check all lights and the buzzer on the alarm panel by pressing the LAMP TEST button.b) Activate the ALARM HOLD button.c) Remove the cap nut from the test rod on the overfill alarm unit.d) Activate an alarm in each tank by lifting the testing device by approximately 10mm until the audible and visual alarms on deck have operated. Confirm with the CCR that the alarm has been indicated on the common alarm/indicator panel and on the Super Cargo computer screen. The red alarm LEDs on the alarm panel and on the switch unit will flash, the buzzer in the alarm panel and the horn on deck will sound, and the xenon strobe alarm lights will flash.e) Press the ACCEPT ALARM button on the alarm panel. The horn, xenon strobe alarm light and the buzzer in the alarm panel should turn off. The red alarm LEDs on the alarm panel should continue to flash.f) Press the RESET ALARM button. All the red LEDs on the alarm panel should turn constant due to the alarm hold function being activated.g) Operate the testing device again, no repeated alarms should occur.h) Ensure that the testing device on each alarm unit has been returned to its normal position, replace the protective screw cap and deactivate the ALARM HOLD button.All alarm LEDs on the panel will now turn off.3.3/3.3.3 Page 4 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft 3.3/3.3.4 Page 1 of 2MONITORING1MONITORING2OPERATIONOPERATION7/Jan/2003 10:51REPOSESeaIsSeaIsPORTPORTVOYAGEVOYAGE 05/0305/03 REMARKSREMARKS LOADLOADAFTDRAFT(m)FOREPORTSTBDTRIM(m)HomeMenu WindowExecute Hold Reject HoldListAssociatedScreenAck.BuzzerStopPageUpPageDownHEEL(deg.)12/Jan/2003 10:23 No.1 WP Revolution Signal BreakdownSYSTEMUTILITYCARGOBALLASTF.O./D.O.MISCELLANEOUS11.1610.0510.009.27A 1.87P 0.05LOADING CALCULATOR (1/1)Illustration 3.4a Loading CalculatorTANK NAMETANK NAMEF.P.

During the formulation of a loading/discharging plan, which is them run through the Super Cargo - XL simulation program, all aspects of the ships hull stress conditions are examined in detail to ensure that no maximum hull stress limits are exceed. After the chief officer has examined the simulation results to ascertain which is the best plan to follow, as long as the loading/discharging plan is followed then the ships stability and hull stress conditions should remain inside the permitted limits.During the actual loading/discharging operation the ships hull condition can be followed via the on screen data as displayed by the Super Cargo - XL software. From the main menu under TANK DATA, the current condition of the cargo, ballast and miscellaneous tanks can be viewed as these data fields are continuously updated. In addition to the cargo operation data being displayed, i.e. observed and corrected ullage, temperature (cargo data screen only), volume, weight, flow rate, remaining volume, remaining time in operation, the screen displays for the cargo (page 2/4) and ballast (page 3/4) system also will give the current status of the maximum shear force and bending moments.If at any time the operator wishes to see a more in-depth analysis of the ships hull condition then the HULL CONDITION field and sub menus should be viewed. From these sub menus, HULL STRESS, DISPLACEMENT and STABILITY the operator will receive a more in depth view of the ships condition. Additionally, the operator will need to view the Loading Calculator from the OTHERS menu first in order to get a live update from the tank data information. The Loading Calculator screen, as shown in the illustration above gives an overview of the tank condition at its last update, additionally it also shows the deadweight summary, ships condition and hull stresses. This page does not receive live data, therefore to update to the current condition it is necessary to do an online data transfer. This is carried out either by pressing F9 from the keyboard or using the tab at the bottom of the screen, F9: O-L DATA. A single burst of data stream will be transferred from the tank condition pages, this information will then be used to update the Loading Calculator and Hull Condition page displays. There are 12 F key tabs at the bottom of the Loading Calculator which can be used by the operator to gain additional information on the ships condition, updated data and save any changes etc. This view of the new data on the Loading Calculator and Hull Condition pages will only be relevant to the screen on which it is being used. If the operator transfers to another screen and views the Loading Calculator and Hull Condition pages, these pages will only show the last condition when they were last updated. 3.3/3.3.4 Page 2 of 2HULL STRESS (1/3)DISPLACEMENT (2/3) STABILITY (3/3)A.P.

The discharge from the fire pumps in the engine room to the engine room fire hydrant system is independent of the discharge to the deck wash fire main system. The bilge, fire and GS pump suction valves from the sea suction main and the discharge valves to the fire main outlets, both to the deck main and engine room are normally open. The discharge line from these pumps to the engine room fire hydrant system is also used for ballasting operations for the aft peak and engine room side ballast tanks. The pumps take suction from the sea, aft peak and engine room side ballast tanks and engine room bilges.The sea suction is from the main sea water crossover line in the engine room. This crossover line has connections to the high sea chest on the port side and low sea chest on the starboard side.The emergency fire pump supplies the fire main only. It is an electrically driven self-priming vertical centrifugal pump. It is situated in the fire pump recess located within the steering gear room, its power supply is taken from the emergency switchboard. The pump can be started remotely from the bridge and the ships fire control station. The emergency fire pump has its own sea chest suction.Preparation for the Operation of the Fire Hydrant Systema) All intermediate isolating valves along the fire main on the main deck must be open.b) All hydrant outlet valves are normally closed.c) The engine room isolating valve to the deck and accommodation in the deck foam and fire control station must be open, EW001V.d) The connection from the emergency fire pump supply line in the deck foam and fire control station must be open, EW004V.e) The emergency fire pump isolating valve to the deck wash, fire main system on the poop deck must be open, EW003V.f) The discharge line valve in the deck foam and fire control station to the engine room hot foam system must be shut, EW002V.g) The isolating supply to the deck foam system must be shut, EF043V.h) The discharge valve to the paint store sprinkler system, WA002V, crossconnection onto the engine room local fire fighting system, and discharge to the chemical store sprinkler system FE071V must be shut.i) Ensure the discharge isolator from the supply to the deck fire/wash deck system to the engine room fire hydrants is open. This valve is a new fitting and has no designated identification number. It enables the engine room system to be back fed from the emergency fire pump.(Note: The engine room fire hydrant system can still be supplied independently from the fire and ballast pump.)j) Set up the valves as shown in the following table:It is assumed that the SW main suction valves at the SW valve chest(s) are open to provide SW suction.The Bilge, Fire and GS PumpsPosition Description ValveOpen No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump SW main suction BM014VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump SW bilge suction BM010VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump SW ballast suction BM011VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump SW direct bilge suction BM009VOpen No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump fire main discharge BM016VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump SW overboard discharge BM018VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump SW ballast line dischargeBM017VOpen No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump SW main suction BM015VClosed No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump SW bilge suction BM012VClosed No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump SW ballast suction BM013VOpen No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump fire main discharge BM021VClosed No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump SW overboard dischargeBM019VClosed No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump SW ballast line dischargeBM020VWARNINGIt is very important that the bilge suction valves are securely closed on the bilge, fire and GS pumps so that there is no possibility of oily water being discharged onto the fire main and subsequently onto a fire. In addition there is the risk of the pumps losing suction in the event of a bilge well becoming empty.k) Start either of the bilge, fire and GS pumps and supply water to the deck fire main.l) Open the desired hydrant valves on the fire main after connecting the fire hose.4.1/4.1.1 Page 2 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftCIPILSCIPICIPIPIHHHHN.I.T.C.NATIONAL IRANIAN TANKER COMPANYBM043VBM047VBM048VBM049VBM046VBM045VBM044VBM050VIllustration 4.1.1a Fire Hydrant System039V071V040V003V 001VWS033V019V039V003VWA002V 036V035V034V033V032V031V030V029V028V026V025V027V024V023V006V 007V 008V 009V 010V 011V 012V016V015V005V004V043V042V041VBM021VBM016V002V002V002V004VEF043VAW001VAW003VAW007VAW010VAW013VAW015VAW005VAW008VAW011V 022V018V 020V 017V 019VVoid SpaceTo DeckFoam To Deck Washand Fire Hydrantseck WashFire HydrantsLifeboat Water FogCurtain System,Identical on Portand Starboard SidesGroup of Fire Hydrants LocatedInside of AccommodationPaint StoreSprinkler SystemGroup of Fire Hydrants LocatedOutside of Accommodation onthe Starboard Side, Port SideHas the Same ConfigurationTo HighExpansionFoamSystemTExpFoamBosunStoreEductorFor VoidSpaceEductorFor Bosun'sStoreEductorFor ChainLocker(Port)EductorFor ChainLocker(Stb'd)021V021V014VTo Aft Deck MachineryHydraulic CoolersEneck FoamstemCross ConnectionTo Engine Room LocalFire Fighting SystemTo Chemical StoreSprinkler SystemEmergency SupplyTo Scrubber Tower013VSeaChestEmergency Fire Pump(290m3/h x110mth)Bilge, Fire and GS Pump (350/290m3/h x30/110mth)No.5 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.2 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.1 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.5 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.2 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.1 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd)No.5Cargo OilTank (Port)No.4Cargo OilTank (Port)No.3Cargo OilTank (Port)No.2Cargo OilTank (Port)No.1Cargo OilTank (Port)ToEductor inVoid SpaceSlopTank(Port)No.5Cargo OilTank (Stb'd)No.4Cargo OilTank (Stb'd)No.3Cargo OilTank (Stb'd)No.2Cargo OilTank (Stb'd)No.1Cargo OilTank (Stb'd)SlopTank(Stb'd)HeavyFuel Oil(Port)HeavyFuel Oil(Stb'd)PumpRoomEngineCasingSteering GearRoom andRope StoreNo.5Cargo OilTankNo.4Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.3Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.2Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.1Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)Swimming PoolKeyFire and Wash WaterAll valves pre-fixed EW unlessotherwise statedPumpRoomTo Drive forPump RoomBilge Eductor045VTo Fire HydrantsOutside ofAccommodationTo Fire HydrantsInside AccommodationDeck Foam andFire ControlStation001V002V045V004VEF043VToTT DeandFrom EmergencyFire PumpToTT Highxpansionm SystemFromngine RoomToTT DeSysDedTxpmnes4.1/4.1.1 Page 3 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft(Note: In order to avoid cavitation and overheating, at least one outlet on the system should be opened to allow some flow through the pump. This would usually be an hawse pipe anchor washer.)Emergency Fire PumpIf the emergency fire pump is to be used, it can be started either locally or remotely form the deck foam and fire control station, hot foam room or the bridge. The pump suction valve EW013V, pump discharge valve EW014V and the discharge valve to the fire main EW003V are always kept open so the pump can be started and supply water to the fire main immediately. The valves should, however, be operated periodically in order to ensure that they are free to be closed should the need arise.The Fire MainThe fire main has outlets at the accommodation block, both outboard port and starboard sides and centrally inside the accommodation block and on the deck forward and aft. At each hydrant outlet is positioned a hose box containing a fire hose and nozzle unit. Hydrant outlet valves should be operated at frequent intervals in order to ensure that they will open satisfactorily should that be necessary in the event of an emergency.At the fire hydrant valve on A deck port and starboard, a branch line fitted with an isolating valve is led off to supply a water fog curtain for the lifeboat embarkation area.Intermediate valves in the fire main along the deck should be kept open at all times in order to ensure that water will be available at all deck hydrants whenever required.In addition to supplying water to deck fire hydrants the fire main system also supplies water to the hot foam system (high expansion foam system) for the engine room and to the foam system for the deck. This isolating valve is located inside the deck foam and fire control station. The bilge eductors in the pump room, the forward void space and chain lockers are operated by means of water supplied from the fire main.The fire main must be maintained in an operational condition at all times and so all hydrant valves must be closed so that pressure is available at the hydrants as required. The foam systems are an essential part of the ships fire fighting capability and the valves to these units must be free and easily operated.4.1/4.1.1 Page 4 of 4N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftCI PI PIIllustration 4.1.2a Deck Foam SystemVoid Space BosunStoreNo.5 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.2 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.1 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.5 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.2 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd) No.1 Water Ballast Tank (Stb'd)No.5Cargo OilTank (Port)No.4Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.3Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.2Cargo Oil Tank (Port)No.1Cargo Oil Tank (Port)SlopTank(Port)No.5Cargo OilTank (Stb'd)No.4Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.3Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.2Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)No.1Cargo Oil Tank (Stb'd)SlopTank(Stb'd)No.4Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.5CargoOil Tank(Centre)No.3Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.2Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)No.1Cargo Oil Tank(Centre)Foam Tank6m3EF036VFE001VEW045VEW002VEF040VEF037VEF038V EF020VEF021VEF015VEF003VEF023VEF022VEF024VEF025VEF027VEF026VEF030V EF032VEF033VEF031VEF014V EF013VEF004VEF012VNo.1No.2No.4No.3EF006VEF011V EF009VEF007VEF002VEF019VEF003VEW001VTo DeckFire MainFromEngineRoomTo Hot FoamSystemFromEmergencyFire PumpFlushingValveKeyFire and Wash WaterFoam and Water MixtureFoamFoam Station withApplicator and HoseEW004VEF010VEF028VEF029VEF008VEF017VEF035VEF043VEF016VFM294.1/4.1.2 Page 1 of 2Foam Monitor and Foam Branch StationFoam Proportioning PumpFire Water Supply from Engine RoomFoam Tank and Pump UnitFire Water Supply to Deck and from Emergency Fire PumpN.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft4.1.2 DECK FOAM SYSTEMDescriptionFoam for fire fighting purposes is supplied to the main deck when required, from a single 6m3 foam tank situated in the deck foam and fire control station on upper deck starboard side. Foam compound is supplied from the tank, via a foam liquid pump, to an automatic proportioner where it is automatically mixed with the correct proportion of sea water and then supplied to the deck foam main.The proportioner mixes the foam compound and sea water in the ratio of 3% foam compound to 97% sea water.The sea water is supplied from the fire main. The foam main runs the length of the main deck and supplies nine foam monitors sited so that the entire deck area can be covered. Seven of the monitors are on the centre line on the deck itself and two are at the forward corners of the accommodation block. Foam hydrants are fitted to the foam supply pipes branched off before each monitor for use with hoses. They are situated at both sides of the vessel. Isolating valves, which are normally open, are fitted to the foam main just forward of each monitor to enable damaged sections of the main to be isolated, so allowing the system aft of the damaged section to operate normally. The foam hydrants are used with hoses and foam nozzles when required. The are four foam station units each containing a foam branch and hose, their locations are indicated on the illustration 4.1.2a. The foam mixture is aerated at the foam monitors and nozzles to give the required consistency. The hoses and nozzles can be used to supply foam to the cargo tanks if required. The capacity of the deck foam system is designed to give 20 minutes operation of one monitor supplying 8,000 litres/minute of foam mixture.Operation of the Main Deck Foam SystemProcedure for Fighting a Fire, After First Raising the Alarma) Open the inlet valve to the monitor to be used for fighting the fire.Only use a maximum of 2 monitors or 1 monitor and 2 applicators.Deck Foam and Fire Control StationPosition Description ValveOpen Master supply valve to foam and deck EW001VOpen Emergency fire pump supply to the deck foam and fire control station EW004VOpen Water supply valve to proportioner FE001VOpen Supply valve to main deck foam main EF043VClosed Foam supply flushing line valve EF035VClosed Foam supply from foam tank EF037VClosed Foam concentrate pump discharge valve EF036VEngine RoomPosition Description ValveOpen No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump sea suction BM014VOpen No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump discharge to fire main BM016VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump bilge suction BM010VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump direct bilge suction BM009VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump ballast suction BM011VClosed No.1 bilge, fire and GS pump discharge to overboard BM018VOpen No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump sea suction BM015VOpen No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump discharge to fire main BM021VClosed No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump bilge suction BM012VClosed No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump ballast suction BM013VClosed No.2 bilge, fire and GS pump discharge to overboard BM019VLocked Open Emergency fire pump sea suction EW013VLocked Open Emergency fire pump discharge valve EW014VOn DeckPosition Description ValveOpen Discharge from the emergency fire pump to deck EW003VAll of the above fire duty pumps are ready to be started locally or remotely from the deck foam and fire control station, hot foam room and the bridge.b) Start the duty bilge, fire and GS pump in the engine room and begin fighting the fire with sea water.c) In the foam room open the foam concentrate pump valves EF037V and EF036V.d) Check line pressure valve, when at working level (5-11 bar). e) Start the foam concentrate pump.The system is now in operation.Fighting Oil Fires on DeckNever direct the foam mixture directly on to the burning oil as this will cause the oil to splash and spread the fire.Direct the foam mixture so that it flows over the surface of the burning oil, in order that it gradually covers and smothers the fire. Use the prevailing wind or slope of the deck to assist the flow wherever possible.Use one or possibly two monitors to fight the fire. If more are used, the effectiveness of each will be reduced.Stopping the Systema) Shut down the fire pump supply and stop the foam pump.b) Close the foam tank suction valve EF037V. c) Close the proportioner inlet valve EF036V.d) Connect a line onto the flushing line and open the flushing valve EF035V. Start up the fire and foam pumps and operate the forward monitor on the deck until clear sea water is discharged. Then operate all other monitors for a few seconds.e) Stop the bilge, fire and GS pump and foam pumps.f) Revert all valves to the standby position, ensuring that the flushing valve is closed. All valves in the foam room, monitor inlet valves and hydrant valves should be closed. All intermediate valves between the monitors and the pressure gauge cock in the foam room should be open.g) Refill the foam tank as soon as possible.4.1/4.1.2 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft4.1.3 DISCHARGE OF CARGO FROM A DAMAGED TANKShould a leakage to sea or to a ballast tank occur due to suspected tank damage, measures should be taken to reduce the head (increase the ullage) in the cargo tank involved, either by internal transfer or discharge ashore. Unless corrective action is taken promptly, oil will continue to flow to sea until the hydrostatic balance is achieved between the head of oil remaining in the tank and the sea water pressure exerted on the outer hull. If it is not possible to identify the specific tank from which the leakage is occurring, the levels of all tanks in the vicinity should be reduced, taking into account the effect on hull stresses and stability. Should it be suspected that leakage is from a fracture on the bottom plating or lower shell plating, then the level in the tank, if full, should be reduced and then a water bottom pumped into the damaged tank to prevent further oil spillage. Remember that in a tidal stream, any seepage or leakage from the hull (or sea valve, for that matter) may be carried by the current to another part of the ship before it surfaces and is noticed. This is particularly so in the area of the bilge keels. For example, oil leaking from a sea valve can be carried forward by the current, entrapped below the bilge keel, to surface in the forward part of the ship.Where action is taken to prevent or minimise oil spillage, preventive measures should take priority over cargo segregation and quality concerns. Similarly, no action must be undertaken that could jeopardise the safety of the personnel on board the ship and on shore.4.1/4.1.3 Page 1 of 1N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft4.1.4 OIL SPILL AND POLLUTION PREVENTION - CARGOSmall spills might occur during routine transfer operations on the ship, i.e. during loading, discharging, ballasting, bunkering etc. If an oil spill occurs at any time, the Ships Oil Spill Emergency Plan (SOPEP) must immediately be put into operation.ResponsibilitiesThe responsibilities of shipboard officers are clearly laid down in the companys regulations but may be summarised as follows.During any loading, transferring or discharging of cargo, tank cleaning or ballasting and when bunkering, the Master or chief officer and the Chief Engineer or second engineer must be on board. During these operations at least one deck officer and engineer must be on duty.Preventative MeasuresThe prevention of oil spills must be regarded as a high priority in any oil transfer operation. The most commonly recorded causes of operational spills are cargo and bunker overflows, pipeline leakage including COW lines, leakage from overboard and sea valves, the accidental discharge of dirty ballast and lastly oil spray from tank vents and common vapour risers. In addition, direct leakage from the ships hull is an occasional cause of minor spillages. Measures adopted to prevent these occurrences are fully described in the International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT), and include specific items on the Ship/Shore Safety Checklist. A copy of this publication should be kept with this plan. If, despite the adherence to proper procedures, an oil spill does occur, all cargo and bunker operations should be stopped by the quickest possible means and should not be restarted until the source of the leak has been identified, rectified and all hazards from the oil released have been eliminated. In most cases, the cause of the leak will be obvious but, in some instances, such as spillages resulting from slight hull leakage, the source may be difficult to locate, requiring the services of a diver.The duty officer assisted by the duty watchman should undertake the following actions in the event of an incident. He should also inform the Master and the Chief Officer and/or the Chief Engineer to facilitate the mobilisation of additional manpower as required and to initiate notification procedures.Tank OverflowShould a tank overflow occur, the flow to the tank should be stopped immediately and the level in the tank lowered by the most practical means.Pipeline LeakageShould leakage occur from the ships on-deck pipe work or from transfer hoses, the cargo operation should be stopped immediately and pressure relieved from the leaking section of line. The line content may be dropped or, if necessary, pumped into an empty or slack tank.Overboard and Sea Valves LeakageShould leakage from an overboard or sea valve occur, the cargo operation should be stopped immediately and the pressure relieved from the relevant sections of line.Oil Spray from Tank Vents and Common Vapour RisersShould an oil spray occur from tank vents/mast risers, the cargo flow should be stopped and the vent/riser shut and allowed to drain. The cause of the oil entrainment in the vapour flow should be established and the necessary measures taken to prevent recurrence.Hull LeakageShould spillage be suspected due to hull leakage, measures should be taken to reduce the head of cargo in the tank involved, either by internal transfer, listing/trimming the ship or discharge ashore. Unless timely corrective action is taken, oil will continue to leak to the sea until a hydrostatic balance is achieved between the head of oil remaining in the tank and the sea water pressure exerted on the hull. Should it not be possible to identify the specific tank from which leakage is occurring, the levels of all tanks in the vicinity should be reduced, taking into account the effect on hull stress and stability. Should it be suspected that leakage is from a fracture in the bottom plating or lower shell plating, consideration should be given to reducing the level in the tank, if full, and then pumping a water bottom into the damaged tank to prevent any further oil spillage.Containment on BoardIn the event of an oil spill on deck, the following steps should be taken to prevent or minimise overside pollution utilising the on board spill equipment.a) Identify the source and stop the leak.b) Place drip trays or containers to catch the leakage.c) Bail or pump pools of oil into tanks, drip trays or containers.d) Soak up the oil with absorbent material, sawdust etc.e) Ensure scupper plugs are tight and any excess water is drained off.f) List/trim the ship to maintain/increase the deck scupper volume.The prevention of overside pollution and its mitigation takes precedence over cargo quality and contamination concerns.Oil Leakage/Overflow During Loadinga) Contact the terminal and request to stop loading immediately. Cease all cargo and ballast operations.b) Follow the individual terminal emergency stop procedures and signals.c) Manifold valves may be closed only after permission is received from the terminal.d) In case of overflow, open valves to any empty/slack tanks to reduce the level of the overflowing tank.e) Sound the General Emergency Alarm with a PA broadcast about the oil spill.f) Check/stop the air intake to accommodation, stop non-essential air intakes to the engine room.g) Close all non-essential sea suctions.h) Re-check that all scuppers are shut.i) Try to contain the spill on board using the portable Wilden pumps and stripping pumps as appropriate.j) Deck clean up is to be started and fire fighting equipment to be kept ready for use.k) Oil spill dispersants/emulsifiers should never be used overside except for small spills where written approval is received from the appropriate authorities.l) Reporting procedures to be followed as per the SOPEP/VRP depending on the location of the ship.m) Loading may be resumed after the fault has been rectified.4.1/4.1.4 Page 1 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftOil Leak/Spill During Dischargea) Stop/trip the cargo pumps immediately. Cease all cargo and ballast operations.b) Inform the terminal about the nature and extent of the leak.c) Sound the General Emergency Alarm with a PA broadcast about the oil spill.d) The manifold valves may be closed.e) Identify and isolate the leaking section of the line if possible.f) Open the drop valves to drain the top lines and consider reducing the IG pressure in the tanks.g) Check/stop the air intake to the accommodation. Stop non-essential air intakes to the engine room.h) Close all non-essential sea suctions.i) Re-check that all scuppers are shut.j) Try to contain the spill on board using the portable Wilden pumps and stripping pumps as appropriate.k) Deck clean up is to be started and fire fighting equipment to be kept ready for use.l) Oil spill dispersants/emulsifiers should never be used overside except for small spills where written approval is received from the appropriate authorities.m) Reporting procedures to be followed as per the SOPEP/VRP depending on the location of the ship.n) Discharging may be resumed after the fault has been rectified.Any spillage that collects near the aft scuppers on the main deck can be pumped into the slop tanks. This is carried out using the permanently fitted diaphragm pumps, one either side on the port and starboard side of the aft main deck, the suction piping system is fitted at the after supper point.4.1/4.1.4 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final DraftIllustration 4.1.5a Emergency Inerting of Ballast TanksNG041VNG029VND027ND009ND002ND025 ND022ND023 ND014 ND011ND005ND029 ND030ND031 ND032Spill Tank (Starboard)Spill Tank (Port)ND006ND007 ND008ND020ND004ND026 ND024BA341Minimum2500LowerGrating inPump RoomNo.5 Water Ballast Tank (Port) No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Port)No.1Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.5 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Centre)VentRiserNo.5 Cargo OilTank (Centre)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.3 Cargo OilTank (Port)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Port)Slop Tank(Port)No.5 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.4 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.2 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)No.1 Cargo OilTank (Starboard)VoidSlop Tank(Starboard)No.4 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.2Water Ballast Tank(Starboard)No.1Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Port)No.3 Water Ballast Tank (Starboard)Upper DeckToTransmitterPanelPump RoomWater Ballast Main LineDeck SealWaterSupplySteamSupplySteamReturnShoreConnectionPortShoreConnectionStb'dEngine RoomBulkheadND001 ND003ND043ND042To Cargo Oil Main LineKeyInert GasSea WaterSteamCondensatePurge Pipe LocationsND019ND021ND018ND013ND015ND010ND012PVBreakerND016NG017VNG018VP PND017DeckSeal4.1/4.1.5 Page 1 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYIran Dena Cargo Operating Manual Issue: Final Draft4.1.5 EMERGENCY INERTING OF BALLAST TANKSDescriptionOpposite each ballast tank there is a spur pipe off the IG main with a blank flange. A connection piece with blank flange is fitted to each ballast tank. Emergency inerting of a ballast tank is carried out by connecting a flexible hose from the inert gas main to the connection piece and supplying inert gas. The tank is vented through the tank vents or via the access hatch at the aft end of the ballast tank. Procedure to Carry Out Emergency Inerting of a Ballast Tank (Example, No.2 Port Ballast Tank Partially Flooded)a) The inert gas plant should be ready to run.b) Check that the IG pressure has been lowered to a minimum.c) Remove the blank from the spur on the IG main and from the connection piece on the ballast tank.d) Connect the portable flexible hose from the spur pipe on the IG main to the connection piece on the ballast tank.e) Start up and run the IG system, normal operating parameters apply, see section 1.4 for details. Open the deck valves ND001 and ND002.f) Check there is sufficient flow at the vent or aft access hatch.g) Monitor the vapour at the outlet.Continue inerting until the oxygen reading at the tank vent is consistently below 8%, at which point the tank can be considered inert. Depending on requirements, it may be prudent to continue inerting until a level of 5% oxygen is reached, to give a greater safety margin.Alternatively the ballast tanks can be inerted using the IG connection to the ballast system as follows:To Carry Out Emergency Inerting of No.2 Ballast Tank Port Side, No Floodinga) Shut valve ND002 to maintain a positive pressure in the cargo tanks.b) The IG system should be running and ready for use.c) Insert the spool piece in the inert gas/ballast system connecting line.d) Open valves ND009 and BA341. e) Open the ballast line valves to No.2 port, BA326, BA364 and BA303.f) Open the ballast tank hatch to act as a vent, provided that there is no lightning or source of ignition in the vicinity.g) Open the deck isolating valve ND001 for the IG main. Inert gas will now be delivered to No.2 port ballast tank, entering via the ballast suction valve and exiting through the ballast tank hatch. Continue inerting until the oxygen reading at the tank vent is consistently below 8%, at which point the tank can be considered inert. Depending on requirements, it may be prudent to continue inerting until a level of 5% oxygen is reached, to give a greater safety margin.Illustration 4.1.5b Emergency Inerting, Ballast Tank No.2 (Port Side)Key:ManholeInerting Via Ballast SuctionWith Cross Connection SpoolPiece Inserted From IG LineTo Ballast Line.Inerting Via Removal OfBallast Tank Inerting Plate,Layering Onto The BallastSurface.IGIGFWDFWD4.1/4.1.5 Page 2 of 2N.I.T.C.NATIONALIRANIAN TANKERCOMPANYForward: Next: Content: Previous: Back: Quit:
